HOUSTON -- After three lackluster quarters by the Houston Texans on Sunday night, a good chunk of the home crowd headed out early. Sam Bennett Flames Jersey.Tough luck for them.Nick Novak made a 33-yard field goal in overtime to give Houston a 26-23 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. Houston became the first NFL team to rally from a 14-point deficit in the final 3 minutes since the Tim Tebow-led Broncos did it in 2011 against the Dolphins.Brock Osweiler threw a 36-yard pass to Jaelen Strong to get Houston to the 12 and Novaks field goal came two plays later.I think a lot of fans tonight missed a terrific performance in the third, fourth quarter by a team, Osweiler said. Nothing was perfect early on, I understand why fans were frustrated but I hope they learned tonight that this team is never going to quit fighting.Indianapolis (2-4) got the ball first in overtime, but Benardrick McKinney sacked Andrew Luck on third down to force a punt.Osweiler shook off a tough start to throw two touchdown passes in less than 2 minutes in the fourth quarter as Houston (4-2) tied it at 23 with 54 seconds left. He found Lamar Miller on a 10-yard catch-and-run TD with 2:47 remaining and, after a stop by the defense, connected with C.J. Fiedorowicz on a 26-yarder that tied it.When you have them down and have a 14-point lead late in the fourth quarter, youve got to be able to close games out, Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. We did not do that today.Houstons defense forced a punt by Indianapolis to send it to OT.Everybody stood together and everybody did their job and made plays and (was) trying to get the ball back to the offense, Jadeveon Clowney said.Luck had a 22-yard touchdown throw in the first quarter and pushed the lead to 20-9 when he dashed into the end zone untouched on a 14-yard run early in the fourth.Miller scored his first touchdown as a Texan on a 1-yard run on Houstons first drive of the second half, but the extra point failed to leave the Texans down 13-9.The Texans stopped the Colts on fourth down after that, but Osweilers pass was intercepted two plays later. Lucks TD run came on the next drive.The Colts led 13-0 in the second quarter after two field goals by Adam Vinatieri and a touchdown catch by Jack Doyle. Osweiler and Houstons offense struggled to get going early and Osweiler had negative-9 yards passing in the first quarter. The Texans cut it to 13-3 before halftime on Novaks 27-yard field goal.MILLERS TIME: Miller finished with a season-high 149 yards rushing and added 29 yards receiving.We felt like he was the guy throughout the game that was probably playing the best on offense so at halftime we said, `Look, weve got to keep finding ways to get this guy the ball, coach Bill OBrien said.CENTURY MARK: Indianapolis Frank Gore had 22 carries for 106 yards to end the NFLs longest active streak of consecutive games by a team without a 100-yard rusher at 55. The last Colt to have 100 yards rushing was Vick Ballard in 2012.RECORD CHASE: Vinatieri made three field goals on Sunday night to extend his streak to 41 in a row and leave him one away from tying the NFL record set by Mike Vanderjagt from 2002-04. Vinatieri made field goals of 41, 37 and 36 yards on Sunday night.I wish one of those points would have been the difference in the outcome of the game, he said.FULLER OUT: Houston rookie receiver Will Fuller was active but did not play on Sunday night because of a hamstring injury. He leads all rookies with 327 yards receiving.UP NEXTColts: Visit Titans next Sunday.Texans: Visit Denver on Oct. 24. Miikka Kiprusoff Flames Jersey .

Darya Domracheva of Belarus was second, 34. . LOUIS -- Cardinals cleanup hitter Allen Craig says hes recovered from a foot injury and ready to be put on St. Canberra coach Ricky Stuart says the fate of his two star playmakers is out of his hands, but hes got his fingers crossed both will feature in Saturdays NRL semi-final.Stuart expects to know by Thursday whether five-eighth Blake Austin will be fit for the do-or-die clash with Penrith at GIO Stadium, while the wait will be a little longer for hooker Josh Hodgson.Austin had his first full training session on Wednesday night since breaking his left hand and undergoing surgery.The exciting No.6 has been confident all week that he will be ready to play this weekend, but Stuart is a bit more cautious.Its going to be how he pulls up over the next 24 hours that will probably make the decision for us, Stuart said.Hodgson didnt train with the squad on Wednesday night, with Stuart agreeing with his rakes assessment on Tuesday that his chances of playing were slim.The rake suffered ligament damage to his ankle during Saturdays qualifying final on Saturday night.Hes improving, slowly, he said.Weve all got our fingers crossed that hopefully hell play.Ill take whatever (risk) I believe is fair to the team.Stuart said not having either or botth would be a massive blow for the Raiders, who are chasing their first preliminary final berth in the NRL era. Calgary Flames T-shirts. hey finished the regular season with 10 wins on the trot, but fell to Cronulla 16-14 on Saturday at home to force them into a sudden death showdown with the in-form Panthers.The club played just two night games in their winning streak, giving Stuart reason to hold a session under lights on Wednesday to get a feel of the potentially dewy conditions expected this weekend.The former champion halfback said his men have been quick to get over the disappointment of losing to the Sharks and are ready to make the most of their second chance.Theres been a huge cultural shift here over the last 10 weeks in the club, he said.Getting close used to be good enough, where now we expect to win.Its a massive culture shift for the club and if I can take anything out of this season, thats it.Around 20,000 tickets have been sold for the match, but Stuart is tipping a bumper crowd of around 25,000. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
