INDIANAPOLIS -- Adam Vinatieri still has it. Willie McCovey Jersey . Donald Brown does, too. When both delivered throwback performances Sunday, it lifted the Indianapolis Colts closer to the playoffs. Vinatieri, the oldest player in the league tied a career-high with five field goals and matched an NFL record with four 40-plus yard field goals in one game. Brown, the Colts forgotten 2009 first-round pick, scored on a 4-yard TD run with 1:56 left to give Indianapolis a 22-14 victory over Tennessee. "Those are by no means chip shots," Andrew Luck said after another troubling offensive showing with only 264 total yards. "To have a guy like that (Vinatieri), it, well, it really makes a difference." Indy (8-4) has a three-game lead over the Titans (5-7) with four left and a sweep of the season series. The Colts can wrap up their eighth AFC South title in 11 seasons with one more win, one more Titans loss or a tie by either team. It hasnt been easy reaching this point, especially after losing five offensive starters with season-ending injuries, and with Trent Richardson struggling. So coach Chuck Pagano shook up things after two blowout losses in the last three weeks. He surprised many by moving Brown into the starting lineup ahead of Richardson, the No. 3 overall pick in 2012 by Cleveland who Indy traded for in September. Pagano replaced Mike McGlynn at right guard with Jeff Linkenbach and also started cornerback Darius Butler ahead of Cassius Vaughn. Vaughn picked off two of Ryan Fitzpatricks passes, and Brown continued to beat up on the Titans despite rushing for only 8 yards in the first 52 minutes. He had 46 yards on the final drive and gave Indy its only touchdown. "I guess it was time to put something together and with the division hanging in the balance, the guys manned up," Pagano said, explaining that Brown earned a rare start and the two backs would both continue rotate. "Just like the first game down there, we were able to run the ball, chew up the clock." They needed Vinatieri even more than Brown. The soon-to-be 41-year-old resembled his much younger self, tying a career high with four field goals in the first half and matching his full-game career high when he hit a perfect 49-yarder for a 15-14 lead late in the third quarter. His fifth field goal also equaled Jason Elams NFL record with a 16th 100-point season, and he joined Morten Andersen as the only players to score 800 points with two teams. Hes the 10th player in league history to make four 40-yard field goals in a game. To Vinatieri, it was just another work day. "You never know how its going to go, and you dont know how youre going to be needed and used," he said. "Today was one of those days that I was needed and used a bunch." Without him, the Colts might be lamenting their first back-to-back losses since December 2011. Luck was just 17 of 32 for 200 yards with no TDs and one interception. Fitzpatrick wasnt much better. Though he scored on a 1-yard plunge in the first half and gave the Titans a 14-12 lead in the third quarter on an ugly 1-yard TD pass to Chris Johnson, Fitzpatrick was 21 of 37 for 201 yards with one TD. Johnson managed only 69 yards on 18 carries. "I didnt play well. We had a shot at the end there," Fitzpatrick said. "I didnt get the job done, and it hurts. For me to come out and not play well hurts." The miscues proved costly. Tennessee gave away three points just before halftime when Moise Fokous personal foul extended the half by one play. Vinatieri cashed in with a 37-yarder. Then, after taking the 14-12 lead, Fitzpatrick had the Titans in scoring position again until NFL sacks leader Robert Mathis stripped him of the ball. Jerrell Freeman scooped it up and ran it to the Titans 32. Four plays later, Vinatieri hit the 49-yarder to give Indy the lead for good. "It puts us in a spot now where weve got to win four games in a row," coach Mike Munchak said. "We have no control of what that may or may not mean." Fitzpatrick was picked off two more times before Brown sealed it with his strong run up the middle. "Pros grind it out," Brown said. "They take it one week at a time and just keep rolling along." NOTES: The Titans lost two more tight ends Sunday. Delanie Walker left with a concussion in the first quarter and Collin Mooney was taken by golf cart into the locker room with what appeared to be a left leg injury in the second half. ... Indy defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois (sprained foot) and running back Daniel "Boom" Herron (strained pectoral) should have MRIs on Sunday night, Pagano said. ... Kicker Rob Bironas joined Al Del Greco as the only Titans in the NFLs 1,000-point club. Nolan Ryan angels Jersey . Smith scored two goals, and Tuukka Rask made 33 saves for his fourth shutout of the season to lift the Boston Bruins to a 5-0 rout of the Ottawa Senators on Friday night. Bo Jackson white sox Jersey .B. - Anthony Gingras scored his second goal of the season with one second left in overtime to give the Acadie-Bathurst Titan a 5-4 win over the Shawinigan Cataractes in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action on Thursday. http://www.throwbackonlineshop.com/boston-red-sox-jim-rice-throwback-jersey/ .C. - Taylor Vickermans third-period goal held up as the winner as the Tri-City Americans edged the Kamloops Blazers 2-1 in Western Hockey League action on Monday.Canadian mixed martial artist Georges St-Pierre successfully defended his welterweight title in both bouts he contested in 2013, but will end the year without the gold around his waist for the first time since 2007. On Mar. 16, coming off a "fight of the year" performance at UFC 154 the previous November, St-Pierre faced Nick Diaz at UFC 158 in what would be his eighth defence of the welterweight title. Using his superior athleticism, St-Pierre cruised to a five round, unanimous decision victory setting up a much-anticipated title defence against number one contender Johny Hendricks. While the victory over Diaz was standard issue dominance from St-Pierre, his Nov. 16 bout at UFC 167 against Hendricks was hotly contested and had a controversial finish. Despite the fact that most people covering the fight scored the victory for the challenger and post-fight metrics, as well as St-Pierres face showed Hendricks was more effective, two of the three judges scoring the bout gave the advantage to thee champion allowing him to leave with a split decision victory. Kirby Puckett Jersey. UFC president Dana White was irate after the fight even calling for the Nevada Governor to launch an investigation into the Nevada State Athletic Commission. It was clear something was also wrong with St-Pierre when after the fight he said that he needed to step away from the UFC, causing speculation that he was going to announce his retirement. Finally on Dec. 13, St-Pierre announced that due to personal issues which he did not reveal, he would be taking an extended break from the UFC as well as vacating the welterweight title he has proudly defended since 2008. "Im going to take a break. I need this," said St-Pierre. "I need to have a normal life for a bit. Ill feel better and come back stronger." Whether this is the end of St-Pierres career or just a bump in the road, he will easily find his way into the UFC Hall of Fame and go down as one of the greatest to ever step into the Octagon. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
