INDIANAPOLIS -- The Houston Texans are heading home with a lot more than a second straight victory at Indianapolis. Under Armour Outlet .Theyre atop the AFC South, again, and in control of their own postseason fate, again, if they keep finding ways to win games.What they did Sunday to snap a three-game losing streak and position themselves for a second straight AFC South title was rely on a proven old-school formula -- run efficiently, force turnovers and let the defense close it out.We have a mindset -- every game is a playoff game, Lamar Miller said after rushing for 107 yards in the 22-17 victory. When we came in (to practice) Monday, you could tell by the energy in the locker room.Right now, everything seems lined up for Houston even though theyre tied for the AFC South lead with Tennessee.Of the three division teams still in contention, Houston has the easiest schedule remaining. It also has a season sweep over the Titans and now its first season sweep of the Colts (6-7). Houston has won nine straight against division foes, tied with Kansas City for the longest active streak in the league.But after snapping a three-game losing streak by winning its second straight on Indys home turf, the Texans know theres still not a lot of margin for error.Its what we talked about, coming here and winning the game, Jadeveon Clowney said after his strip-sack of Andrew Luck on third-and-goal from the 3-yard line snuffed out a scoring chance late in the third quarter. We now control our own destiny.The Colts, meanwhile, must rely on help after Luck was picked off twice, lost the fumble and couldnt put enough points on the board on a frustrating day that left players battered and their playoff hopes severely bruised.It is not what we all anticipated and what we were working for but it didnt work out, Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. Sometimes that is just how life goes. You dust yourself off, you pick yourself up and you keep moving forward.Here are some other things we learned from Sundays game:GOLDEN OLDIESColts kicker Adam Vinatieri extended his NFL record of 100-point seasons to 19 and set a franchise record with his ninth 100-point season since joining the Colts in 2006. Indy running back Frank Gore ran for 41 yards and had 33 yards receiving, including an 18-yard TD catch, passing Terrell Owens (16,185) for No. 11 on the NFLs career list for yards from scrimmage. Gore has 16,217 yards.Houston linebacker Brian Cushing had six tackles to give him 639 in his career, three more than previous franchise record-holder DeMeco Ryans. Texans punter Shane Lechler also surpassed former Colts and Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning with his 267th game played.GROUND AND POUNDThe city that once featured the high-octane run-and-shoot offense may go more frequently with the ground-and-pound style to win their second straight division crown.Houston rushed for 185 yards against the Colts and it could be the playbook of the future. After Brock Osweiler was picked off in the first half to end a scoring chance, Houston ran on 10 of its next 12 plays, capping the drive with Millers 2-yard TD plunge.REGRRESSIONThe Colts season largely has been a case of a couple of steps forward and a couple more backward. This week was a perfect example.After dominating the New York Jets on Monday night, the Colts scored one first-half field goal and didnt even come close again until early in the third quarter when a 41-yard defensive pass interference set up Gores score on a screen pass. Indys only other score came on a 35-yard TD pass to T.Y. Hilton early in the fourth.DEFENSIVE DIFFERENCEAfter missing last weeks game at Green Bay and being limited in practice earlier this week, Clowneys return made a difference. He finished with three tackles and one sack, but came up big when it mattered most with the strip sack on the goal line and pressuring Luck into an errant throw on fourth-and-1 from the Texans 42-yard line with 1:24 left to seal the win.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFLCheap Under Armour Shoes . They were putting most of their energy into a record-setting offensive display. Stephen Curry 4 2018 . Reassurance came from Paul Tesori, his caddie and close friend whose newborn son is in intensive care in a Florida hospital. "Paul sent me a text this morning, just told me he loved me and wanted to go out and fight as hard as I would any other day," Simpson said Sunday after doing just that. http://www.curry4forsale.com/ .

UK takes on Arkansas at 6 p.m. on Friday in Memorial Coliseum before welcoming Ole Miss on Sunday at 1:30.I really like our focus and it shows on game day, UK coach Craig Skinner said. In practice weve been doing a good job of really trying to improve and work on specific things. I was a little worried today that coming out of the break after being up 2-0 that we might let down a little bit, but having the lead didnt seem to phase them. That type of competitive maturity is very important.Kentucky simply dominated all phases of the match in the convincing victory over Tennessee on Sunday in front of 1,949 fans. UK overpowered the Lady Vols in every category including kills (45-36), hitting percentage (.333-.139), assists (42-34), aces (4-0) and blocks (12.5-1.0).Sophomore setter Olivia Dailey was exceptional once again, distributing the ball to a number of Wildcat attackers to keep the Lady Vols defensive effort at bay. Seven UK players had two or more kills on the afternoon. Dailey dished out 40 assists as UK averaged 15 kills a set on a .333 average.Junior Darian Mack was the most efficient off any Wildcat with nine kills on a career-high and match-high . Under Armour Clearance. 571 average. It was her most productive match since posting 10 hammers on a .400 clip in a win over Lipscomb.Darian really changed the momentum and impacted the left side of the net with 5 blocks and 9 kills, Skinner said. Im really proud of her effort today. Darian is one of the best blockers from the left side of the net that youre going to see in the country. She has great instincts and has a great knack for where the ball is going to cross the net. We obviously want to take advantage of that.Freshman Lead Edmond topped double-figures for the 11th-consecutive match with a match-high 14 on a .407 average. Junior Emily Franklin had seven kills, while classmate Kaz Brown added six. Sophomore Brooke Morgan and senior Anni Thomasson both chipped in with a trio of kills, while senior Sharay Barnes added a pair of hammers.Franklin led the defensive charge with six of UKs 12.5 blocks.

Brown added four, while Morgan chipped in with three.Junior Ashley Dusek led the backline defense with a match-high 11 digs. Three other Wildcats contributed a high number of digs with Thomasson, Edmond and Dailey all posting six.
