Tony Dungy treats the mounting questions like he's a politician. Everyone wants to know how the Indianapolis Colts cope with the pressure of staying perfect 1 more week. Dungy usually responds with a tactful touch. But there is one question that makes the Colts' coach groan: Will he continue playing starters if the Colts clinch the AFC South title, a first-round bye and homefield advantage this weekend? "I don't think too far ahead, but I do everything I can to win," he said with a chuckle.

The Houston Texans turned to their kids, then to their stars, to win the first playoff appearance in franchise history, a 31-10 rout of the bungling Cincinnati Bengals. Rookie J.J. Watt's leaping interception return for a touchdown late in the first half propelled the Texans in Saturday's AFC wild-card game. Third-string quarterback T.J. Yates, another rookie pressed into action, threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to Andre Johnson, and Arian Foster followed with his second touchdown of the game, a 42-yard run in the fourth quarter, to finish off the Bengals (9-8)

INDIANAPOLIS - Reggie Wayne will always remember last night's catch. The man with the expiring contract caught a 1-yard touchdown pass from Dan Orlovsky with 19 seconds left, giving the Colts their only lead of the game in a 19-16 victory over AFC South champion Houston. It's the second straight win for the Colts (2-13), who will have to fight off St. Louis and Minnesota for the No. 1 overall draft pick. Orlovsky, who played the last two seasons with Houston, also won his second straight game after losing his first nine NFL starts.

Kerry Collins spent most of the season waiting for a chance to prove he could still play. Last night, with a playoff spot at stake, Tennessee's backup quarterback delivered the biggest win of the season. He led the Titans to three second-half field goals, including a 54-yarder from Rob Bironas to retake the lead in a 16-10 victory over host Indianapolis (13-3) that left Tennessee celebrating and Cleveland grimacing. The Titans visit San Diego next Sunday. The Titans (10-6)

INDIANAPOLIS - Peyton Manning underwent more neck surgery Thursday, the third time in 19 months, and will miss not only the opening game but possibly the entire season. Losing Manning for any stretch of time is a huge blow to the Colts and throws the race for the AFC South wide open. The four-time NFL MVP hasn't missed a game in 14 NFL seasons, with 227 consecutive starts, including postseason. "Rehabilitation from such surgery is typically an involved process," the team said in a statement, calling the procedure "uneventful.

INDIANAPOLIS - Chuck Pagano was so eager to get back to work Monday, he was the first one to show up at team headquarters. Long before meeting with his players, the Colts' first-year coach drove quietly into the complex, walked into the office where the lights have remained on for nearly three months, and began preparing for Sunday's game against AFC South champion Houston as if it were another day at the office. Hardly. It was the biggest milestone yet in an incredibly emotional season in which Pagano has beaten leukemia and the Colts have been a most pleasant surprise in reaching the playoffs under interim coach Bruce Arians.
