Post ing Pittsburgh ahead 5-4 on the powe
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Tennessee Titans will at least have the second overall draft pick to help them rebuild off the franchises worst season in 20 years.After finishing with a 27-10 loss to Indianapolis on Sunday that was the Titans 10th straight and 14th in 15 games, coach Ken Whisenhunt wasnt ready to start looking ahead to his second season just yet. Whisenhunt does know what it will take to win back fans who sold out the stadium with thousands refusing to show up.We are going to have to show them, Whisenhunt said. Obviously at this point after a tough season, its hard to say that. But we are going to get a good pick. We are going to have a chance to get some good young players in here. I think if you look at some of our draft picks from this year, they did pretty well.The Titans (2-14) missed out on the top pick overall when Tampa Bay lost to New Orleans, a selection this franchise hasnt had since trading for the pick in 1978 to draft Earl Campbell. They will be picking second overall for the first time since 1984.Whisenhunt noted they went through seven offensive tackles, five tight ends and three quarterbacks due to injuries. Actually, make that four with Jordan Palmer finishing up after Charlie Whitehurst hurt his shoulder when sacked for the fourth time by the Colts.For us to go and lose the way we did consecutively, its embarrassing, tight end Delanie Walker said.The Titans tried to throw a pass to 10-year veteran Nate Washington whose contract is up after this season, but they couldnt connect with him. They also struggled even when they scored.With goal to go, the Titans twice had high snaps and followed the first with a delay of game penalty before Whitehurst found Kendall Wright for a 6-yard TD pass. On the second, Whitehurst could only cover up as he was sacked, and the Titans settled for a 31-yard field goal by Ryan Succop.It was the kind of mistakes Whisenhunt said he hasnt seen his Titans make in practice or in other areas of the field.Those are things you cant have happen, Whisenhunt said.Punctuating the Titans horrible season was a loss at the hands of their AFC South rival. Indianapolis now has won seven straight and 12 of the last 13 in this series.Andrew Luck also topped one of Peyton Mannings franchise records playing only the first half as he threw for 160 yards and two touchdowns.The Colts (11-5) bounced back from their worst performance this season by nearly matching what they did offensively in the loss at Dallas by halftime. They wound up outgaining the Titans 378-192 as the AFC South champs swept their division a second straight season for the first time in franchise history.I feel a heck of a lot better obviously today than we did a week ago this time, Colts coach Chuck Pagano said.Luck came in needing only 100 yards passing to top Mannings record of 4,700 yards passing in 2010 and passed Manning on an 80-yard catch-and-run by Reggie Wayne. Luck also became only the eighth quarterback in NFL history to throw four TDs and at least 4,000 yards in a season.Unbelievable, Pagano said. I didnt realize that was the play that the record was broken. We gave Andrew a gameball and obviously credited him. Great milestone. Great record for Andrew, but very fitting that 87 was on the other end of that.The Colts also came up with four sacks, and Vontae Davis simply took the ball away from Titans rookie running back Bishop Sankey in the fourth quarter.NOTES: Titans punter Brett Kern had a career-high 79-yard punt in the second quarter that also tied the franchise record set by Jim Norton in 1964. ... The Titans will draft first in the second, fourth and sixth round in the 2015 draft, and second in the first, third and fifth round.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Teresa M.

Jermey Parnell Jersey .com) - No Sidney Crosby, no problem.PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Penguins and Montreal Canadiens are still adjusting to NHL play after a nearly three-week Olympic layoff. And it showed Thursday night. The Canadiens, playing in their second game in as many days, however, got a good performance in the end from their backup goaltender as he filled in for an injured Olympic gold medallist . Peter Budaj stopped all three shooters in the shootout and David Desharnais scored the only goal, leading the Canadiens to a wild 6-5 victory. "He battled back in the second and third and in the shootout he was outstanding," Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said of Budaj. Budaj, in his second straight start for injured starter Carey Price, stopped Penguins shooters James Neal and Sidney Crosby before denying Evgeni Malkins slap shot for the win. Desharnais, the third shooter for Montreal, slammed on the brakes at the top of the crease before sliding the puck by Marc-Andre Fleury. "I would like to have some goals back, but we scored five goals against Pittsburgh," Budaj said. "We have to learn from the mistakes we made. We have to keep going and getting better." Daniel Briere scored twice, once on the power play, and Max Pacioretty also scored with the man advantage, his 27th of the year. Brendan Gallagher netted his 15th for the Canadiens and Alexei Emelin also scored his second of the season. Budaj, who stopped 27 shots, made his second straight start after turning aside 28 shots during an overtime loss one day earlier against Detroit. "You can tell the bench guys wanted to battle back for him because he certainly worked hard," Therrien said. He filled in for Price, who was named the top goaltender at the Olympic games after going 5-0 with a 0.59 goals-against average and two shutouts, leading Team Canada to a gold medal. Price, who aggravated a lower-body injury sustained in Sochi, will be re-evaluated Friday. "Credit to the team because they stuck with it, they battled for me and we got the two points," Budaj said. Crosby, who leads the NHHL with 80 points, scored his 29th and added an assist.dddddddddddd Neal scored his 21st for his 300th career point and also had an assist, while Malkin provided two assists, both extending six-game point streaks. Olli Maatta scored his seventh of the season on the power play and had an assist, while Brandon Sutter had a short-handed goal, his 10th of the year. Deryk Engelland also scored his career-high fifth goal. "We worked hard," Crosby said. "It was a little sloppy, and a lot of special teams. ... Probably a tough first one for everybody to get into." The teams were tied at 3 after two periods and both scored twice in the third, sending the game to overtime. Three of the four third-period goals were scored by special teams units, Sutter giving the Penguins a 4-3 lead with a short-handed breakaway goal and Crosby later putting Pittsburgh ahead 5-4 on the power play. Emelin tied it 24 seconds after Sutter gave the Penguins the initial lead and Briere sent the game to overtime with his second goal of the game. With the Canadiens trailing, the Penguins Tanner Glass was issued a five-minute major for a hit on Emelin. The call was elbowing, but video replays showed Emelins stick came up and hit him in the head. "Thats why I kind of followed through the way I did, to get his stick away from my face," Glass said. "Its a hockey play, it happens. I can understand why he made the call." The Canadiens cashed in anyway, Briere tying it with his second of the game when he feathered a back-door rebound behind Fleury, who made 24 saves. NOTES: Penguins D Kris Letang spoke with reporters Thursday morning, the first time since suffering a stroke and said he will likely play hockey again, but its unclear if he will return this season. ... Paul Martin, out 4-to-6 weeks after breaking his hand in the Olympics, was scratched along with recently recalled D Simon Despres. ... Price, C Ryan White, and D Francis Bouillon were scratched for Montreal. ... Penguins F Jussi Jokinen recorded his 400th career point.
