Texans, Colts meet in playoffs after turning around seasons
HOUSTON (AP) — Saturday's wild-card game between the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts is a matchup that seemed improbable early this season after Houston dropped its first three games and the Colts limped to a 1-5 start.
Instead of letting their tough starts lead to disappointing years, these teams which both finished 4-12 last season turned things around to lead the AFC South and charge into the postseason.
Luck keeps Colts in playoff hunt with 28-27 win over Giants
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck took one peek at the New York Giants' defense and changed the call.

Including some fancy footwork at a big moment.
After throwing three TD passes, Luck calmly stepped through Miami's pass rush and found Chester Rogers for a 34-yard gain that helped set up Adam Vinatieri's 32-yard field goal as time expired in the Colts' improbable 27-24 victory over the Dolphins on Sunday.

Texans end losing streak in OT after Vinatieri sets record
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Ka'imi Fairbairn took advantage of his final chance Sunday.
The third-year kicker missed a 59-yarder to win the game at the end of regulation, then a 37-yarder near the end of overtime. But the Indianapolis Colts had called timeout just before that one, and Fairbairn finally made the decisive kick as time expired to help Houston snap the league's longest losing streak with a 37-34 victory at Indianapolis.
There are a number of great major college football players who will be taken in the NFL Draft on April 26-28 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. However, there are some impressive NFL prospects from some of the historically Black colleges and universities, too.
