ARLINGTON, Texas - So much for Andrew Luck and the AFC South champion Indianapolis Colts building some momentum for the playoffs. Matthew Dellavedova Jersey .At least they avoided their first shutout in 21 years, long after Luck took his last snap Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.Tony Romo threw four touchdowns, one immediately after Dewey McDonald flubbed a perfectly thrown pass on a fake punt by the Colts, and Dallas clinched its first NFC East title in five seasons with a 42-7 victory.We will find a way to get these things fixed. If we play the way we did tonight, we cant expect to do anything down the road, coach Chuck Pagano said. Its the National Football League. Its a tough business. Its not for everybody. Thats why we dont get discouraged. Disappointed, yeah, but discouraged? Never.Indianapolis (10-5), held to a season low in points and yards for the second week in a row, has one game left to get back on track before going straight into the playoffs without a first-round bye.Im thinking about Tennessee first, Luck said. Weve got to fix this game and focus on Tennessee, and then we can worry about the playoffs.Things went awry in a hurry for Indianapolis, with Dallas opening the game with a 15-play touchdown drive that took nearly 8 1/2 minutes and the Colts failing to get a first down on three rushing plays. When punter Pat McAfee saw McDonald uncovered on the outside, he threw a lofting pass. McDonald just flat out missed what would have been an easy first down.Romo threw his own perfect pass on the very next play, a 19-yard touchdown to Dez Bryant to give Dallas (11-4) a 14-0 lead.A lot of these are self-inflicted wounds, said safety Mike Adams, who was then asked if the Colts are ready for the playoffs. We have no choice but to be ready. After this performance, its hard to say. ... The most dangerous team going into the tournament is the wounded team, and thats us right now.After Romo surpassed Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman as the Cowboys career passing leader with a 25-yard TD to Jason Witten for a 35-0 lead with 4:41 left in the third quarter, Luck gave way to backup Matt Hasselbeck.The Colts, with only 1 yard rushing among their 229 total yards, finally scored on Hasselbecks 1-yard TD pass to Zurlon Tipton after a pass interference call in the end zone wiped out a Dallas interception on a fourth-and-10 play.Hasselbeck, who finished 15 for 21 for 126 yards, appeared to have another touchdown. But tight end Jack Doyle — almost fittingly — dropped the ball in the end zone with 22 seconds left.There were other drops, and Luck (15 of 22 for 109 yards) had interceptions just before and right after halftime. But the tone was set on that failed fake in the first quarter.I took my eyes off of it for just a split second, said McDonald, whose flub came right in front of the Colts bench.Weve been practicing that play for a long, long time and executed extremely well during practice,, Pagano said. They gave us an opportunity for that play to be there, and we didnt execute it.With a home playoff game already in hand, Indianapolis sat receiver T.Y. Hilton (groin injury) and right tackle Gosder Cherilus.NFL rushing leader DeMarco Murray played with a broken left hand, but the Cowboys didnt need much from him. He finished with 58 yards, with a 1-yard score.Romo, in his eighth full season, was 18 for 20 for 218 yards to put him at 32,971 for his career, 29 more than Aikman, a three-time Super Bowl winner.For us to get the W and Tony to break the record, thats a great accomplishment, Bryant said. Hes a warrior. Today he was on fire. He was on fire.Notes: By avoiding the shutout, Indianapolis has scored in 336 consecutive games since a 38-0 loss at New England on Dec. 26, 1993. That is the second-longest active scoring streak behind Denvers 355 games. ... Colts TE Dwayne Allen had a pair of drops on passes that should have gained first downs before leaving with a knee injury. ... A holding penalty stalled a drive after Indianapolis finally got a first down with six minutes left in the first half.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Kevin Love Black Jersey .Rooney was set up well by his teammates for both goals as Radamel Falcao met a long cross into the area in the 23rd minute, sliding to reach the ball at the far post and square a perfect pass for Rooney to tap into an empty net. JR Smith White Jersey . Nikolaj Ehlers had the other two goals for the Mooseheads (9-6-0), who led 3-1 after the first period. Anthony Richard and Guillaume Gelinas replied for the Foreurs (7-6-0).ST. LOUIS - David Ortiz deserves a lot of love for his performance in the Red Soxs 4-2, World Series-tying victory on Sunday night at Busch Stadium. Hell get it here; a little later on. In the immediate, the focus will be on Jonny Gomes and an unsung hero, Felix Doubront. The Red Sox are two wins away from the franchises third world championship in 10 seasons. This, despite an offensive output offensive to the sensibilities. Boston is hitting a collective .223 in the playoffs. After a solid start against the Rays (38-133 - .286), the Red Sox have been stifled by the Tigers (39-193 - .202) and the Cardinals (24-127 - .189) through four games. There is one offensive area in which the Red Sox are thriving: the timely, usually multi-run home run. This is where Gomes comes in. His three-run, sixth inning blast off Cardinals reliever Seth Maness broke a 1-1 tie and gave the Red Sox the 4-2 lead they wouldnt relinquish. The home run was Gomes first of the postseason. It was Bostons fourth hit of the game. The Sox would finish the night with a total of six hits. Gomes joins David Ortiz (Game 2, ALCS, game-tying grand slam,) Mike Napoli (Game 3, ALCS, solo home run) and Shane Victorino (Game 6, ALCS, go-ahead grand slam) among Red Sox players with big home runs on otherwise dry offensive nights this fall. Funny thing, Gomes wasnt supposed to start. He was a late addition to the starting lineup when Victorino went down with lower-back pain. "I was notified about halfway through batting practice," said Gomes. "Like I said earlier, its all I fought for this year; just the opportunity. So when my number is called, Im stepping up. Im not dodging any situation. Obviously a little different pregame than playing and not playing so I kind of got changed real quick." Doubront, a 26-year-old left-hander who won 11 games for a second-straight regular season, authored 2 2/3 innings of one run, one hit ball in relief of Clay Buchholz, who was removed for a pinch hitter in the fifth. To be clear, Doubront was dominant. He exited in the seventh after allowing a two out double and was tagged with a run when Craig Breslow, whos had a bad series, coughed up a single to the first hitter he faced. Kevin Love Autographed Jersey. Doubront threw 32 pitches, all the more impressive considering hed thrown two scoreless innings on 25 pitches the night before. Remember, hes accustomed to starting. Pitch, rest and prepare for four days and then pitch again. The routine is different and requires mental and physical adjustments. His performance gave Gomes the opportunity to be the offensive hero. "I was pretty much focused," said Doubront. "And when I got my time, when I got that opportunity to go up there and do my job - you know, as a reliever - now I was feeling pretty good. And like I say, focus and try to get serious and give my teammates the opportunity to score more runs and win the game." Meantime, Ortiz, after struggling to just two hits in the ALCS (yes, one of them was that important grand slam) is suddenly red hot and should Boston win the series, would cement his status as one of the greatest Red Sox of all time. Ortiz had three hits and a walk in four plate appearances and scored two runs. Hes 8-12 (.667) and has drawn four walks in the World Series. In 16 plate appearances, hes been on base 12 times. He was seen in the dugout giving a rah-rah speech to teammates before the start of the sixth inning, at the time the game was tied 1-1, and while its foolish to believe the talk propelled Gomes home run ball over the fence, it offered insight into his willingness to allow his mouth, along with his play, to do the talking. "Through five innings we got two hits and hes got both of them," said Red Sox manager John Farrell. "His career states what hes done. Hes a tremendous hitter at any point in time in the year. Playing first base has certainly not affected it in any way. Hell be back in there (Monday) at first." With the victory, the Red Sox assured this series returns to Fenway Park and perhaps more importantly, returns to American League rules. The Cardinals will have to beat a Boston lineup that will include Ortiz and Mike Napoli, not one or the other. Were down to a best of three. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
