s game just like all the others.He figures if the same , simple routine helped him earn four Super Bowl rings, 226 victories and become the best clutch kicker in NFL history, it should be good enough to help him break the NFL&#8217;s career scoring record.The 23-year veteran needs 10 points to break Morten Andersen&#8217;s record (2,544) &#37413;?though you wouldn&#8217;t even know it from Vinatieri&#8217;s unflappable demeanor. He&#8217;s so focused on ending Indy&#8217;s four-game losing streak, he hasn&#8217;t bothered contemplating a celebration.&#8220;I&#8217;m not an overly charismatic guy when it comes to certain things like that. I don&#8217;t have a dance or a celebration or any of that stuff lined up,&#8221; he said. &#8220;The crazy thing is it usually happens in the middle of a game and I try to stay super focused in, not wanting to be a distraction to team.&#8221;So far, he&#8217;s stuck to the plan.When he broke Andersen&#8217;s career field goals mark in a Sept. 30 loss to Houston, Vinatieri&#8217;s teammates looked more excited than the traditionally stoic kicker.And whenever the next record falls &#37413;?against Buffalo (2-4) this weekend, next week at Oakland or sometime after Indy&#8217;s bye on Nov. 4 &#37413;?those who know Vinatieri best say he&#8217;s earned the right to do his own thing.&#8220;We probably don&#8217;t appreciate him enough,&#8221; quarterback Andrew Luck said. &#8220;The most impressive thing is his approach, his humility, how he prepares. He&#8217;s great. I certainly feel fortunate to play with him and it&#8217;s one of the things I look forward to telling my kids and grandkids about.&#8221;The Bills understand just how good Vinatieri has been through the years. For the first nine seasons of Vinatieri&#8217;s career, Buffalo faced him twice a season as an AFC East rival. In fact Josh Ferguson Jersey , two of Vinatieri&#8217;s 27 game-winning field goals came against the Bills and his postseason prowess helped turn a young soccer player, Stephen Hauschka , into a fan of the Patriots, Vinatieri and kicking.&#8220;His picture was in my dorm room, a signed photo of him kicking in the snow game and it&#8217;s still in my parent&#8217;s house in my old room,&#8221; said Haushcka, Buffalo&#8217;s kicker.&#8220;I wasn&#8217;t like one of those crazy fans, but I look up to the guy. I think anybody does and what he&#8217;s been able to do. The fact that he&#8217;s able to still do it in his mid-40s is really impressive.&#8221;Andersen, who played high school football in Indy, has held the record since December 2006 and Vinatieri is the only other player to top the 2,500-point mark. Vinatieri also is the only player in league history to score 1,000 points with two different franchises.But now, with the league&#8217;s oldest player at age 43, on the verge of history again T.J. Green Color Rush Jersey , he doesn&#8217;t want to make it about himself. He&#8217;d just rather help the Colts earn their 300th victory since moving from Baltimore to Indy in 1984.&#8220;I just want to stay focused on football,&#8221; Vinatieri said. &#8220;I don&#8217;t want it to be a reason for a lull in momentum. I love the fact that guys are happy and excited, I love to be a part of that, too, I just don&#8217;t have a bunch of good dance moves or any crazy stuff.&#8221;QUARTERBACK CHANGEJosh Allen&#8217;s sprained right elbow is a major setback for Buffalo. Coach Sean McDermott ruled out the rookie quarterback Wednesday and announced 35-year-old Derek Anderson will get the start one week after coming out of retirement.The truth is, McDermott didn&#8217;t have many options. Backup Nathan Peterman has thrown four interceptions in less than four full quarters this season, including two in the final two minutes of last week&#8217;s loss to Houston.BILLS REUNIONHall of Famers Jim Kelly and Thurman Thomas are among a group of former Bills players expected to attend Sunday&#8217;s game and they&#8217;ll be watching a former teammate, Frank Reich, coach from the opposite sideline.It&#8217;s the first time Reich will serve as a head coach against the team he once led to one of the greatest playoff comebacks in league history.&#8220;It&#8217;s a really close-knit group,&#8221; Reich said, before responding to a question about the 32-point rally he engineered against Houston in January 1993. &#8220;It&#8217;s crazy, it&#8217;s so long ago. I know it&#8217;s on television every now and then, but it&#8217;s not something I talk about very much.&#8221;DEFENSIVELY SPEAKINGThe Bills&#8217; defense has improved dramatically since allowing 75 points in the first six quarters of the season.Buffalo has forced two or more takeaways in each of its past four games while picking off five passes and recovering six fumbles. The red-zone defense also has limited opponents to four TDs and four field goals in the past nine drives inside the 20-yard line.WORKING MANLuck is 186 of 288 in six starts this season and leads the league in both categories. His 16 TD passes are second in the NFL and he&#8217;s thrown at least one TD pass in 29 consecutive games &#37413;?one short of tying Dan Marino, Ben Roethlisberger and Matt Ryan for the eighth-longest streak in NFL history.But Luck also shares the league lead in another category , interceptions (eight). HOUSTON (AP) &#8212; A year ago at this time Andrew Luck was at home struggling with an injured shoulder that cost him the entire season.On Saturday he wrote a happy ending to the latest chapter of his comeback season, throwing for 222 yards and two touchdowns and the Indianapolis Colts raced out to a big lead and cruised to a 21-7 win over the Houston Texans in the wild-card game. Luck put on a show in his hometown in a stadium where he'd attended games throughout childhood and played in them since high school, throwing for 191 yards and two touchdowns before halftime to help the Colts (11-6) build a 21-0 lead.He denied feeling "at home" at NRG Stadium, but admitted to having warm feelings for the city he grew up in and where his grandparents and many friends still reside."But it's still an away stadium," he said. "It was very loud, very energetic, but fun to win, certainly."Running back Marlon Mack had 148 yards and a touchdown for Indianapolis, which advances to face the top-seeded Kansas City Chiefs in the divisional round next weekend."We know we have an elite quarterback and we can throw it for 400 and win when we have to," Indianapolis coach Frank Reich said."But the margin for error in playoff football when you try to do it that way is very thin. When you can win like this &#8212; running the football and stopping it &#8212; that's just everything."Houston (11-6), which overcame a 0-3 start to win the AFC South, gave up too many big plays and couldn't get anything going on offense in the first half to fall into the huge hole.Deshaun Watson, who was sacked an NFL-leading 62 times in the regular season, was sacked three times and hit eight more times in a disappointing playoff debut. He finished with 235 yards passing with a touchdown and an interception."Just a lack of execution on our part Christine Michael Sr Jersey ," Watson said. "We didn't make plays. I didn't make plays. Communication was a little off. You just got to give the Colts the credit."The Colts, who opened the season 1-5, continued an impressive run by winning their fifth straight and for the 10th time in 11 games. Saturday was their first playoff appearance since the AFC championship game loss at New England in the "Deflategate" game in the 2014 season.It was another good game in a splendid season for Luck. He threw for 4,593 yards and 39 touchdowns in the regular season after missing all of 2017 with a shoulder injury.The Texans didn't score until rookie Keke Coutee grabbed a 6-yard touchdown pass to cap a 16-play, 89-yard drive that included a fourth-down conversion that cut it to 21-7 with about 11 minutes left.They led the NFL with nine comeback wins this season, but their attempt at a rally ended on their next possession when Watson's pass on fourth-and-10 from the Indianapolis 24 fell short with about four minutes left.Luck threw for 863 yards with six touchdowns as the teams split two meetings in the regular season. He picked up right where he left off in this one, when he found Eric Ebron on a 6-yard TD pass on their first drive. That play was set up by a 38-yard catch by T.Y. Hilton, who had 63 yards receiving on that drive."We didn't have a lot of guys that made the playoffs so the guys that made the playoffs wanted to go out there and set the tone early, try to get the crowd out of the game," Hilton said. "That's what we did."Hilton didn't have any catches on the next drive, but the Colts still drove down the field easily and made it 14-0 on a 2-yard run by Mack later in the first.Houston went for it on fourth-and-4 from the Indianapolis 45 on its second possession and Watson was intercepted by Kenny Moore II. It was his first interception since he threw two against the Redskins on Nov. 18.The Colts got to the 17 after that before J.J. Watt deflected Luck's pass and he was intercepted by Brandon Dunn. But the Texans couldn't move the ball and had to punt.Indianapolis pushed the lead to 21-0 when Luck connected with Dontrelle Inman on an 18-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter."It's very frustrating when they're able to execute and get their job done," Watt said. "We had a couple of big penalties early in the game as well. But you have to overcome it and you have to find a way to win."The Texans had a fourth-and-1 from the 9 late in the second quarter and went for it again instead of settling for a field goal. The gamble didn't pay off when Watson's pass to DeAndre Hopkins was low and bounced in front of him in the end zone.INJURIESColts: Safety Malik Hooker left in the third quarter with a foot injury. &#8230; S Mike Mitchell injured his calf in the third quarter and didn't return.Texans: Safety Justin Reid injured his ribs in the second quarter and didn't return. &#8230; Hopkins said he played most of the game with a Grade 3 AC sprain of his right shoulder after injuring it in the first half.UP NEXTColts: Travel to Kansas City where the Chiefs were 7-1 in the regular season.Texans: The Texans have some decisions to make in the offseason with defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and safety Tyrann Mathieu both becoming free agents. They might use the franchise tag to keep Clowney, who was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 draft.
