INDIANAPOLIS - Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts are heading back to the playoffs. Robin Roberts Jersey . And they are bringing a strong ground game and an improving defence.The Colts used Lucks two second-quarter touchdown passes and a time-consuming drive for a late field goal to beat the Houston Texans 17-10 on Sunday, clinching their second straight AFC South title.We ran the ball well and we had a good rush average, Indianapolis coach Chuck Pagano said. Our defence did a great job stopping their run.Thats the combination Pagano has been looking for since he took the Colts job in 2012.Over the last part of the season, the Colts (10-4) appear to have firmed up both areas. Indy rushed for 110 yards against the Texans (7-7), including nine straight plays on a late drive for a 29-yard field goal. The Colts have rushed for 100 or more yards three times in four weeks.The defence, meanwhile, has allowed just four touchdowns over the past four weeks — even though the Colts have been turning the ball over at an alarming rate.And Luck has made just enough plays to help Indy win four straight. He was 18 of 34 for 187 yards with the two touchdowns and one interception against the Texans.Theyve been doing a heck of a job giving us great field position, Luck said. We didnt necessarily capitalize on all the opportunities that our defence gave us and other stuff, but did enough.Houston dropped to 0-13 in Indianapolis, though it certainly had chances to end that losing streak on Sunday.The Texans grabbed a 7-0 lead on Kendrick Lewis 27-yard interception return. Luck tied the score with a 26-yard TD pass to Hakeem Nicks.Houston then recovered Reggie Waynes fumble, but rookie quarterback Tom Savage botched a handoff on the next play and gave the ball right back to Luck.Three plays later, Luck hooked up with Dwayne Allen on a 3-yard TD pass to make it 14-7 midway through the second quarter.Here are some other takeaways from Sundays game:QUARTERBACK QUANDARY: Houston lost starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick early in the second quarter with a left leg injury. Fitzpatrick was carted off the field with an air cast covering the leg.With Ryan Mallett already out for the season, the Texans must make some decisions. Savage and Fitzpatrick were the only quarterbacks on the active roster Sunday. Thad Lewis was inactive.REGGIES RECORDS: Colts receiver Reggie Wayne has achieved a lot of feats in his 14 NFL seasons. Sunday was another big day. He caught four passes for 24 yards, won his ninth division title and broke the franchise records for games played (209) and career wins (142). He was tied with former teammate Peyton Manning in both categories.WATTS ELECTRIC: Texans defensive end J.J. Watt sure knows how to light up the Colts. In the first meeting this season, he had two sacks and returned a fumble for a touchdown. This time, he had two more sacks, two passes defenced and seven tackles. Nine of his 53 career sacks are against Indy.DIVISION DOMINANCE: Indianapolis has dominated the AFC South since its creation in 2002. Indy has won nine division titles since 2002 and 12 straight games against division foes.TURNOVER TROUBLE: Pagano has spent the last month pleading with his offence to protect the ball. Theyre still having problems. Wayne lost one fumble and Luck threw another interception Sunday. Over the last four games, Indy has fumbled 14 times, losing eight, and thrown four interceptions. The two turnovers Sunday allowed Houston to break its franchise record for takeaways with 31 — two more than it had in 2011.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.orgm and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL ;Jimmy Foxx Jersey . Yahoo! Sports columnist Marc Spears says that the Boogie Smooth album may have been an elaborate April Fools prank. Steve Carlton Jersey . - The Cleveland Indians will place centerfielder Michael Bourn on the disabled list before their opener at Oakland on March 31.ARLINGTON, Texas -- Texas Rangers ace Yu Darvish was put on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, the same day he threw a 32-pitch bullpen session without any issues. Darvish had been set to be the Rangers starter in Mondays opener against Philadelphia before having neck stiffness during camp. He last pitched in a game two weeks ago and didnt resume throwing until consecutive sessions this weekend. Texas also put left-hander Matt Harrison, last years opening-day starter, on the 15-day disabled list while setting its 25-man roster for the start of the season. Harrison, who made only two starts last season before twice having surgery on a herniated disk in his back, had a setback early in spring training, when he felt neck and back stiffness. He could return to the rotation before the end of April. Darvishs move to the disabled list was retroactive to March 21, meaning he could be eligible to return next weekend. Harrisons move was retroactive to March 29. Left-hander Derek Holland was already on the 60-day disabled list and not expected back until at least June after surgery on his left knee, injured during the off-season when he was tripped by his dog on stairs in his home. Texas said Darvish reported feeling strong after his bullpen session with pitching coach Mike Maddux on Sunday, a day after 30 throws off flat ground. Darvish, who last season led the majors with 277 strikeouts and finished second in the AL Cy Young Award voting, will get a day off from his throwing program before resuuming Tuesday. Greg Luzinski Jersey. Texas also selected the contract of infielder Josh Wilson from Triple-A Round Rock, and he could start at second base. Infielder Adam Rosales was designated for assignment, giving the Rangers 10 days to trade him, release him or send him outright him to the minor leagues. Second baseman Jurickson Profar (muscle tear in right shoulder) and catcher Geovany Soto (torn meniscus cartilage in right knee) are both expected to be out up to three months. Profar was put on the 15-day disabled list, and Soto on the 60-day list. The opening 25-man roster includes only four starting pitchers: Tanner Scheppers, Martin Perez, Robbie Ross and Joe Saunders, the left-hander signed after camp opened and who earned an increase in his base salary from $500,000 to $1.5 million by being on the active roster for one day. The Rangers dont need a fifth starter until the second week of the season, and will make a move then. Texas will start the season with seven relief pitchers and three catchers: J.P. Arencibia will start and be backed up by Robinson Chrinois and Chris Gimenez. The six outfielders include Mitch Moreland, who also is a first baseman and designated hitter. Wilson likely will split time at second base with Donnie Murphy, claimed off waivers last week from the Chicago Cubs. The only other listed infielders are first baseman Prince Fielder, shortstop Elvis Andrus and third baseman Adrian Beltre. Stitched Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys WholesaleCheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
