Luck finishes the game completing 25 of 44 passes for 370 yards, three touchdowns, one interception and a fumble.T.Y. Hilton caught nine balls for a career-high 223 yards and a touchdown in the win.The Texans (3-3) attempted to make a late comeback. Defensive end J.J.

With the score the same and two minutes to play Houston had the ball on its own 21 yard line, but quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was stripped by Bjoern Werner and D'Qwell Jackson recovered the ball to seal the game for the Colts.

Arian Foster ran for 109 yards and two touchdowns in the loss, as Indianapolis takes over sole possession of first place in the AFC South.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Drives New Social Responsibilities

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Drives New Social Responsibilities

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell addressed the media Wednesday to promote the new efforts the league is taking to promote social responsibility and curb domestic violence.

In recent months, the NFL has suffered a few bumps and bruises as well as a couple black eyes as prominent players such as Greg Hardy, Adrian Peterson and Ray Rice have had run-ins with the law.

Goodell stated that he had spoken with all 32 team owners as well as prominent executives across the league to outline what changes and policies the league plans to implement. Among them, providing aid to the victims of abuse.

"There was a great deal of focus too, on what support services we can provide to the family," Goodell stated. "Particularly in the cases, obviously, of domestic violence."

The Commissioner wants to provide clear and concise guidelines so that any member of the NFL knows what the repercussions will be if they step afoul of the law.

"We are obviously trying to focus on our policies, our education, what we can do to prevent it from happening and when it happens, deal with it, so it's clear the consequences," Goodell said.

A.J.

Other players are going to get great opportunities, because Brandon is a guy that plays an important role and logs a lot of ice time, penalty kill, power play, 5-on-5 and key situations. It’s just more opportunities now for other players.”Dubinsky, who scored 16 goals and dished out 34 assists last season, was injured during practice Monday. He was first listed as day-to-day, but the team's medical staff determined surgery was the best option.Dubinsky joins a lengthy list of injured Blue Jackets that includes Nathan Horton (back), Ryan Murray (knee) and Boone Jenner (hand).

Nationals Avoid Elimination, Top Giants 4-1 in Game 3 of NLDS

Nationals Avoid Elimination, Top Giants 4-1 in Game 3 of NLDS

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(SAN FRANCISCO) -- Madison Bumgarner's throwing error in the seventh inning led to the Washington Nationals scoring two runs, while two more -- the last coming on a Bryce Harper solo home run in the ninth -- led the team to avoid elimination and top the San Francisco Giants 4-1 in Game 3 of their NLDS Monday.

The Giants' 10-game postseason winning streak is over, but they still lead the series 2-1.  

Both Bumgarner and Doug Fister pitched brilliantly. Fister allowed four hits, walked three, while striking out three in the win. Bumgarner pitched seven innings, allowing six hits, two earned runs, one walk, while striking out six in the loss -- he hadn't allowed a run in 21 straight postseason innings until the seventh inning.

Wilson Ramos put down a sacrifice bunt that rolled between the mound and the first-base line. Bumgarner fielded the ball and tried to get the runner out at third, but his throw went wide of Pablo Sandoval's glove, allowing Ian Desmond and Harper to score. Asdrubal Cabrera then hit an RBI single to give the Nationals a 3-0 lead.

San Francisco attempted to rally in the ninth, but Nationals' pitcher Drew Storen settled down after that, allowing only one run to score to force a Game 4, which will take place Tuesday in San Francisco. Gio Gonzalez will take the mound for Washington and will be opposed by Ryan Vogelsong.

Alabama Loses RB Drake for at Least 8-10 Weeks

Alabama Loses RB Drake for at Least 8-10 Weeks istockphoto(TUSCALOOSA, Ala.) -- Alabama lost more than a football game last Saturday: running back Kenyan Drake has suffered a broken leg in the team's 23-17 loss at Ole Miss.

Alabama head Coach Nick Saban says it will be 8-10 more weeks before Drake can even think about playing football again. Losing Drake means the Crimson Tide loses versatility. Drake has rushed for 126 yards and four touchdowns while also catching four balls for 145 yards and two touchdowns this season."Kenyan has a lot of production for us and has done a really good job all year long," Saban said. "I don't think there's any question about the fact that when you do lose a player like that it does have some impact.

No. 7 Alabama (4-1, 1-1 SEC) will play Arkansas in Fayetteville on Saturday.

Royals Sweep Angels, Meet Orioles in ALCS

Royals Sweep Angels, Meet Orioles in ALCS

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY) -- In their first playoff appearance since 1985, the Kansas City Royals swept the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday, reaching the American League Championship Series (ALCS). The 8-3 margin was the largest in the best-of-five series after Kansas City won two games in Los Angeles in extra innings.

"I've never seen this group of kids so confident on the big stage," said manager Ned Yost. "It's really fun to see their development and watch them come into the postseason and just really take their game to the next level."

The Angels, who earned homefield advantage by having the leagues best regular-season record, took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first when Mike Trout homered off James Shields for his first-ever postseason hit. That lead quickly evaporated in the bottom half of the inning when the Royals' Alex Gordon drove in three runs with a double off C.J. Wilson, chasing the Los Angeles starter.

Kansas City added to the lead in the third inning on Eric Hosmer's second homer of the playoffs, a two-run shot to center. Albert Pujols tried to spark a rally for the Angels with a solo shot of his own, but that was all Los Angeles could muster off Shields.

"Big Game" James went six strong innings, allowing two runs on six hits while striking out six, while the offense added two runs in the fourth and another in the sixth. Wade Davis gave up a run in the eighth but the bullpen shut down an otherwise punchless Angels offense.

The Royals will now meet the Baltimore Orioles, who swept Detroit earlier in the day, in the best-of-seven ALCS. Game One is Friday night in Baltimore.

Kemp’s Homer Helps Dodgers Even Series

Kemp’s Homer Helps Dodgers Even Series

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Despite giving up a late lead for the second straight night, Matt Kemp's eighth inning home run lifted the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 3-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday night. The victory helped the Dodgers even the best-of-five series at one game apiece before it shifts to St. Louis on Monday.

Los Angeles took a 2-0 lead in the third when Dee Gordon ground out to second, plating A.J. Ellis before Zack Greinke scored on an Adrian Gonzalez single. Greinke seemingly was in control while on the hill, tossing seven scoreless innings and giving up just two hits.

Manager Don Mattingly went to his bullpen in the eighth and J.P. Howell gave up a game-tying, two-run homer to Matt Carpenter. The Cardinals jubilation was short lived as Kemp led off the bottom of the inning with his go-ahead blast off Pat Neshek.

"He tried to get me with a couple of sliders," Kemp said. "I laid off some tough ones that were close on the plate, but he left one just out on the plate that I could do something with and I put a good swing on it."

After falling 10-9 in Game One, the Dodgers now travel to St. Louis with the series tied an Hyun-Jin Ryu pitching against John Lackey in Game Three.

(25) TCU Holds Off (4) Oklahoma

ThinkStock(FORT WORTH, Texas) -- The TCU Hornded Frogs had been 6-12 in their last 18 Big 12 games after making a name for themselves as "BCS-busters". On Saturday, the 25th ranked Horned Frogs won their conference opener, beating number four Oklahoma 37-33 at home.

Quarterback Trevone Boykin racked up 395 total yards of offense against the Sooners (4-1), throwing for 318 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Meanwhile, the TCU (4-0) defense forced three turnovers in the game and intercepted Trevor Knight twice.

The Horned Frogs jumped out to an early 14-0 lead, but Oklahoma rallied to tie the game after one quarter. Both squads traded scores in the second quarter with Michael Hunnicutt hit a 24-yard field goal to tie the game at 24-24 as the first half ended.

Oklahoma took their first, and only, lead of the game in the third quarter when Samaje Perine run in from seven yards out for a 31-24 advantage. That was quickly erased by TCU's Deante Gray, who caught a 29-yard pass from Boykin less than three minutes later. The Horned Frogs took the lead for good when Paul Dawson returned an interception 41 yards for a touchdown, making it a 37-31 ballgame.

The Sooners picked up two points when they blocked the extra point and returned it to the end zone, but they would be unable to avoid the upset. It's the first time since 2005, over then-number 5 Oklahoma, that TCU pulled off the win over the Sooners.

Stacy Revere/Getty Images(OXFORD, Miss.) -- In what could go down as the greatest win in school history, No. 11 Ole Miss knocked off third ranked Alabama at home on Saturday, 23-17. The victory snapped a 10-game losing streak to the Crimson Tide (4-1) while also keeping Mississippi (5-0) undefeated.

The Rebels took an early 3-0 lead on a Gary Wunderlich field goal in the first quarter, but Alabama responded with a touchdown drive in the second. As Ole Miss looked to take the game into halftime trailing 7-3, I'Tavius Mathers fumbled at the 13-yard line while the Tide recovered it for a touchdown and a 14-3 halftime advantage.

However, the comeback was on in the second half. Trailing 17-10 midway through the fourth, Bo Wallace connected with Vince Sanders on a 34-yard touchdown pass to tie the game with 5:29 left in regulation. Mississippi quickly got a chance at the lead when Alabama fumbled the ensuing the kickoff and Ole Miss recovered. 

Just a couple plays later, Wallace found Jaylen Walton from 10 yards out, giving the Rebels a 23-17 lead with 2:54 remaining. Alabama threatened to steal the upset away, driving into Ole Miss territory in the waning moments. Crimson Tide quarterback Blake Sims fired a deep pass into the endzone with 37 seconds left, but Senquez Golson picked it off to seal the victory.

It marks the first time since 1962 that Mississippi has won the first five games of a season.

Giants Win Longest Game in Postseason History

Giants Win Longest Game in Postseason History

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(WASHINGTON, D.C.) -- Brandon Belt's home run in the top of the 18th inning gave the San Francisco Giants a 3-2 lead, and eventual win, in the longest postseason game in Major League Baseball history on Saturday night. The victory also gave the Giants a 2-0 series lead over the Washington Nationals as the series now shifts to San Francisco.

Washington took a third inning lead on Anthony Rendon's RBI single off Tim Hudson. That looked to be more than enough for Nationals starter Jordan Zimmerman, who pitched into the ninth inning without allowing a run. Zimmerman retired the first two batters in the top of the ninth but walked Joe Panik to put the tying run on base.

Manager Matt Williams went to his bullpen, calling on Drew Storen to close the door. Buster Posey would eventually single before Pablo Sandoval doubled in the tying run, forcing extra innings. Posey was tagged out at home on the play, preventing the Giants from taking the lead.

Both teams used a combined 17 pitchers over the next nine innings, before Belt's homer against Tanner Roark opened up the top of the 18th. Hunter Strickland picked up the save, tossing a scoreless bottom of the 18th, while Yusmeiro Petit got the win going six shutout innings in relief.

The six hour and 23 minute affair surpassed a the 2005 NLDS Game 4 contest between the Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros for the longest in playoff history. Houston won that game, and swept the Braves, on a walk-off homer from Chris Burke in the bottom of the 18th inning.

Broncos Cut Kicker Matt Prater

Broncos Cut Kicker Matt Prater

National Football League(DENVER) -- The Denver Broncos released veteran kicker Matt Prater on Friday, citing a "football decision". Prater was scheduled to be activated Monday after serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

With the move, Denver will put all their faith in Brandon McManus for the remainder of the season. The Broncos acquired the 23-year-old in a trade with the New York Giants, giving up a seventh-round pick in return. McManus has converted all three field goal attempts this year, none longer than 24 yards.

I've been very impressed with him, he's got great potential, he's a great young kicker,'' Broncos head coach John Fox said. "We feel really good, and part of any football decision [is], you go with who you think gives you the best chance.''

The most accurate kicker in franchise history, Prater also holds the league record for longest field goal made, a 64-yard kick in 2013.

(18) BYU QB Suffers Season Ending Injury in Loss to Utah State

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(PROVO, Utah) -- The 18th ranked Brigham Young Cougars saw their hopes of a perfect season, and a potential Heisman nomination, fall on Friday night in a 35-20 loss at the hands of Utah State. Making matters worse, BYU quarterback Taysom Hill suffered a broken leg in the first half, effectively ending his season.

"It was really difficult to watch Taysom go down," said BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall. "Our execution will now have to be better from top to bottom because of Taysom's ability to create. There just isn't another Taysom Hill out there anywhere."

Hill, who had started to garner Heisman finalist talk, was injured as he scrambled to his right before being tackled by the Aggies Brian Suite. The junior quarterback landed awkwardly on his leg and had to be carted off the field.

That injury merely started the downfall for the Cougars (4-1) who trailed 21-14 at the time of his departure. Utah State (3-2) added another touchdown before halftime and never looked back. 

Backup quarterback Christian Stewart threw three interceptions in the second half as BYU was only able to convert a pair of field goals the rest of the way. Any hopes of a comeback were officially put on ice when Nick Vigil scored from one yard out to make it 35-17 late in the third.

The Aggies racked up 457 total yards of offense in the upset, including 321 passing yards and three touchdowns from quarterback Darell Garretson.

Royals Beat Angels in Extras Again, Hold 2-0 Series Lead

Rich Pilling/MLB Photos via Getty Images(ANAHEIM, Calif.) -- For the second consecutive night, the Kansas City Royals used an extra inning home run to beat Los Angeles, 4-1, in the American League Divisional Series (ALDS) on Friday night. Eric Hosmer's two-run homer in the top of eleventh gave the Royals a 3-1 lead, taking a 2-0 series lead over the Angels.

Kansas City became the first time in Major League history to open up a postseason with three consecutive extra-inning wins, after spending 29 years without a playoff berth. They are the sixth team to win a trio of extra-inning games in one playoffs appearance. The previous five have all gone on to win the World Series.

The Royals took an early lead against Matt Shoemaker when Alex Gordon drove in Hosmer with a single in the second. Los Angeles would eventually knot the score in the sixth on an Albert Pujols single, making it a 1-1 game after six innings.

The Angels had a chance to take a lead in the bottom of the eighth. C.J. Cron doubled off reliever Wade Davis and was pinch-ran for by Collin Cowgill. Following Chris Iannetta's fly-out to center, newly inserted Jarrod Dyson threw out Cowgill trying to advance to third.

That helped send the game into extras for the second straight night. Lorenzo Cain stretched out an infield single before Hosmer's go-ahead blast off Kevin Jepsen. Kansas City reliever Greg Holland pitched a scoreless bottom half of the inning, striking out Mike Trout to end the game.

The series now shifts to Kansas City where James Shields will take on C.J. Wilson.

Cardinals Rally, Beat Kershaw in Game 1

Cardinals Rally, Beat Kershaw in Game 1

Elsa/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- In a matchup that featured two of the top pitchers in the game, the St. Louis Cardinals won a 10-9 game over the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game One of the National League Divisional Series (NLDS) on Friday night. The Cardinals scored eight runs in the seventh inning to come from behind against Clayton Kershaw before holding off the Dodgers late.

It started out as a blowout in favor of Los Angeles, as they built up a 6-1 lead through five innings. After Randal Grichuk homered in the first to give St. Louis a 1-0 lead, the Dodgers quickly took the lead scoring twice in the third. Two more runs were added in the fourth before A.J. Ellis launched a two-run homer in the bottom of the fifth off Adam Wainwright.

Meanwhile, Kershaw was mowing down opponents striking out eight batters through six innings. The southpaw had only given up two hits, both solo home runs, going into the seventh inning. It was then that the Cardinals made their rally.

The first four batters of the inning would reach on Kershaw, culminating on a Matt Adams RBI single. Pete Kozma then struck out for the first out of the frame before John Jay singled in another run to make it a 6-4 deficit. After another strikeout got the Dodgers within an out of ending the inning, Matt Carpenter cleared the bases with a double, giving St. Louis a 7-6 lead and chasing Kershaw.

The Cardinals would go on to score three more runs when Matt Holliday homered off reliever Pedro Baez for a 10-6 lead. Los Angeles threatened to take the lead back in both the eighth and ninth innings. Adrian Gonzalez's two-run homer in the eighth made it a 10-8 ballgame, while an RBI ground out got the Dodgers within a run and put the tying score at third. However, Yasiel Puig struck out to end the ballgame and give St. Louis a 1-0 series lead.

Game Two of the NLDS is set for 9:30 p.m. on Saturday at Dodger Stadium. Lance Lynn (15-10, 2.74 ERA) gets the call for the Cardinals while the Dodgers send Zack Greinke (17-8, 2.71 ERA) to the hill.
