Stage set: Colts beat Texans, help Pats

Deji Karim's 101-yard kickoff return after a Houston field goal gave the Colts the lead for good and Indianapolis held on to beat the Texans, 28-16, Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium, leaving the door wide open for the Patriots to clinch a first-round bye with a win over Miami. 

All the Patriots need to do is beat the Dolphins in their season finale at Gillette Stadium and they will clinch at least a No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs, which begin next week. If the Patriots win and the Broncos lose at home to Kansas City, they will clinch the No. 1 overall seed and home field throughout the playoffs for a second straight season. 

The Colts were trailing 16-14 on a Shayne Graham field goal when Karim raced right up the middle nearly untouched for a touchdown that changed the momentum of the game for good. The Colts all but sealed the win later with a 70-yard TD connection from Andrew Luck to T.Y. Hilton on third-and-23, putting Indianapolis up, 28-...

Gronkowski active for Pats season finale

FOXBORO -- Patriots Pro Bowl tight end Rob Gronkowski will be active and available to play for the first time since breaking his left forearm on Nov. 18 against the Colts.

Report: Pats have second thoughts on Gronk

FOXBORO -- Whether it's the bitter cold expected for the game or just being cautious, the Patriots are having second thoughts about activating Rob Gronkowski in the season finale against the Dolphins at Gillette, according to a report from CSNNE.com's Tom Curran. 

Curran tweeted Sunday morning that another source - different from the one that indicated Saturday that Gronkowski would return - says the Patriots "have not finalized" the decision to play the Pro Bowl tight end. Gronkowski broke his left forearm on Nov. 18 blocking the final extra point in New England's 59-28 win over the Colts at Gillette. He has since missed all five games but still leads all NFL tight ends with 10 touchdown receptions.

Without Rondo, Celts no match for Warriors

The Celtics fell below .500 (14-15) for the first time time in almost two months after dropping a 101-83 decision to the Warriors in Oakland Saturday night. With the defeat the Celts have been outscored by 47 points in their last two games.

Not helping matters for the Celtics was the absence of point guard Rajon Rondo, who sat out of the game with a bruised right thigh and hip. Rondo suffered the injury during the C's loss to the Clippers in Los Angeles Thursday night.

While the Celtics only shot 36 percent from the floor, with Jeff Green (2-for-11) and Paul Pierce (4-for-20) both struggling mightily, much of the talk after the game coming from the C's lamented the team's lack of defense.

"We're getting beat a lot on on one-one-one defense," Celtics coach Doc Rivers told reporters.

The Warriors, who improved to 21-10 after going 12-4 in December, shot 52 percent fro the floor. Leading the way for the hosts were Stephen Curry...

BC's York sets NCAA record for victories

Boston College hockey coach Jerry York became the NCAA's career leader in wins when the top-ranked Eagles posted a 5-2 victory over Alabama-Huntsville on Saturday at the Mariucci Classic in Minneapolis. York is 925-558-41 in 41 seasons as a head coach, giving him one more win than former Michigan State coach Ron Mason.

York, who previously coached at Clarkson and Bowling Green, has led the Eagles to four national titles, including 2012.

"I've always been about the team," he said after the milestone win. "When I was a player, I was like that. Since I've been a coach, I've been like that. I've never really sought individual goals."

BC will celebrate York's accomplishment on Jan. 18 with Jerry York Night when the Eagles host UMass.

BC (12-2-1) next faces fourth-ranked Minnesota on Sunday night.
