I just think what it does for everybody in life is real simple

  • INDIANAPOLIS - Andrew Luck hears the instructions every week. nfl jerseys china .Avoid turnovers.Get the ball to his cast of playmakers.Win at home.Its been a proven plan for years in the NFL, and now, after blowing a 14-point second-half lead in their home opener two weeks ago, the Colts franchise quarterback knows his team cannot afford another misstep on its home turf. Especially against a division rival.You have to win your home games and protect that turf, Luck said. We take that to heart and we know we need to get back on the right track.Indy (1-2) took one step last week by beating up on winless Jacksonville to snap the first two-game losing streak of Lucks career.Now comes reeling Tennessee (1-2), which is 0-6 at Lucas Oil Stadium.On paper, Sundays game looks as if its two teams going in opposite directions.Luck seems to be getting in sync, having reduced his interception total in each of the first three weeks while taking the league lead in touchdown passes (nine).The Colts ground game has provided balance, the makeshift offensive line is playing with more cohesiveness, they are coming off their first turnover-free game of the season. And a defence that limited Peyton Manning to seven second-half points and Philadelphia to six first-half points put together its most complete game against the Jaguars.The Titans defence, meanwhile, has allowed 59 points in two straight losses after opening the season with a win over Kansas City.Things arent about to get any easier.For the second straight week, Tennessee faces a defending division champ on the road, this time potentially without starting quarterback Jake Locker who injured the wrist on his throwing arm.But coach Ken Whisenhunt is more concerned with making corrections.I think we need to cut penalties out. Weve had way too many of those, Whisenhunt said when asked about fixing the defence. Weve got to play better, as far as some of the technique things that were doing to try and keep teams from having sustained drives on us.The Colts will try to get back to the basics of Chuck Paganos hometown plan.Weve got to stack wins together, Luck said. We dug ourselves a bit of a hole with those first two weeks, but I think were on the right track. Hopefully, we can keep this momentum going.Here are some other things to watch Sunday.THE LOCKER ROOM: Whisenhunt and Titans doctors will closely monitor Lockers health before making a decision. Locker completes 56.4 per cent of his passes and is tied for the league high in interceptions (four). If he doesnt play, longtime journeyman but little-used Charlie Whitehurst would likely make his fifth career start. Whitehurst hasnt thrown a pass since 2011 and has a career completion rate of 54.2 and more interceptions (four) than touchdowns (three).DIVISION CHASE: Sure, its early, but the Colts are already in the midst of a key four-week stretch with three games against AFC South foes. A sweep would allow the Colts to take control of the division race. And it could happen. Indy has won eight straight over division opponents, the longest active streak in the league. Against Tennessee, the Colts have been even better a€” winning five straight and 10 of the past 11.SLOW STARTS: A year ago, Indy had to perpetually dig itself out of slow starts. Now, its the Titans turn. Tennessee has been outscored 16-0 and 19-0 in the first half of its past two games, and if the Titans fall behind early again Sunday, it will only compound the potential problems for a team that wont be at full strength a€” with or without Locker.GROUND CHUCK: Pagano has the one-two punch in the ground game. Ahmad Bradshaw is healthy, running hard and catching passes. Trent Richardson has shown steady improvement. The combination has allowed Indy to rush for 313 yards over the past two weeks. Tennessees struggling run defence must find a way to slow down the suddenly efficient Colts.WAYNES MILESTONES: Reggie Wayne could turn this weeks game into another personal showcase. He needs three receptions to pass Isaac Bruce for seventh on the NFLs career list, 24 yards receiving to pass Henry Ellard for No. 10 all time. A three-catch day would extend Waynes NFL record to 75 straight games, and it could all come in his 200th game.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Wholesale jerseys . "I just think what it does for everybody in life is real simple," said Babcock early on Friday afternoon. "You dont give in. You just keep on keeping on. Is it going to go your way every time? No. But you choose your attitude and how you perform and how hard you dig in." Nearly four years to the day of the 2010 gold medal match in Vancouver, his team dug in with its best effort of these Olympics, snuffing out the high-powered Americans for another opportunity at gold. cheap nfl jerseys .

After Bilbaos Ander Herrera missed a good chance to strike first, Atletico midfielder Jorge "Koke" Resurreccion swung in a cross from the right side for Diego Godin to thump home with a powerful header in the 41st minute. The defending champions pressed to extend their advantage, but Bilbao limited them to a glancing header from Raul Garcia that goalkeeper Iago Herrerin stretched to save 10 minutes from time. "I was lucky enough to hang a ball up there that Godin put in," Koke said. "With 1-0 the tie isnt decided, but we got a good result heading there.&quoot; Diego Simeones side remained unbeaten at its Vicente Calderon Stadium in 18 games this season. wholesale nfl jerseys. . While his team continues to deploy the toughest defence in Spain, Atletico striker Diego Costa came up empty for a fifth match in 2014. "The truth is that we would have liked to have at least drawn. Now we have to turn it around at San Mames," said Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte, who tussled with Diego Costa throughout the intense match. In other opening legs this week, Barcelona rolled to a 4-1 victory at Levante, Real Madrid won 1-0 at Espanyol, and Real Sociedad beat third-tier Racing Santander 3-1 at home. The second legs will be next week after the 21st round of the Spanish league. Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
