    NASHVILLE, Tenn. Cheap Curry Shoes Wholesale . -- Titans defensive lineman Jurrell Casey wouldnt even answer when asked about Tennessee ending its stretch of futility against the Colts, simply shaking his head to ignore the question in the locker room.Thinking about possibly ending the skid against their AFC South rivals can wait.The Titans want to spend a few extra hours enjoying their biggest win in recent seasons.They will turn their attention officially to Indianapolis on Wednesday because routing the Green Bay Packers 47-25 earned players their first Victory Monday off this season. Its a well-deserved break for a franchise second in the AFC South and at .500 this late in a season for the first time since 2011.Tennessee coaches started Monday trying to figure out how to beat the Colts in Indianapolis where the Titans havent won since 2007, and coach Mike Mularkey expects most players will either work or study on their own. The Titans have never won in eight games at Lucas Oil Stadium and have lost 10 straight overall and 15 of the last 16.Mularkey said the Titans have to learn how to win these games.We have to do that in Indy, Mularkey said. We have to do that Week 11. We have to do that because were in the chase for a playoff spot. Those are things we have to learn how to do, and I think were learning. This is a process were going through right now. Were learning a lot about ourselves. These are the games weve got to learn how to win.The Titans (5-5) not only have turned around from a 1/3 start this season, they also have matched the win total for the past two years combined by winning four of their past six games.Tennessee is winning with an offense putting up numbers that rank with the NFLs best:- The Titans are averaging 33.7 points a game over the past six weeks, which has pushed them to eighth in the NFL in points per game. Tennessee didnt score more than 16 points in each of its first three games.- Tennessee has scored at least 35 points in three consecutive games in a single season for the first time in franchise history.- They lead the NFL with 26 touchdowns on 34 trips inside the 20, a 76.5 percent conversion rate.- Marcus Mariota currently is the AFCs second-highest rated passer at 99.6, behind only Tom Brady, and seventh in the NFL.- The quarterback also leads the AFC with 21 TD passes, trailing only Drew Brees and Matt Ryan (24 each) and Aaron Rodgers (22).- Murray is the NFLs second-leading rusher behind only Ezekiel Elliott of Dallas. Murray also is tied for third for most touchdowns scored with 10 and is third in the league for most yards from scrimmage (1,189).Putting up 47 points against Green Bay was a big confidence boost for the Titans.I think it is a high stepping-stone, you know it is getting us in the right direction, Mariota said after the win. There is still a lot of season left, a lot of things we have to go and accomplish. Hopefully, we can use this as momentum going into the rest of the year.That starts Sunday against the Colts (4-5). Tennessee lost 34-26 to Indianapolis on Oct. 23 . The Titans then visit Chicago (2-7) before finally getting their bye. They finish hosting Denver (7-3) followed by a two-game road swing at Kansas City (7-2) and Jacksonville (2-7).Their season finale Jan. 1 hosting Houston could be for the AFC South title for a franchise that hasnt reached the postseason since 2008.Were trying to keep going in a positive direction in a lot of different ways, Mularkey said.---AP NFL website: and Teresa M. Walker at Wholesale Curry Shoes Cheap . -- Its been a long road back for Sean Bergenheim. Cheap Curry Shoes Clearance . Pence singled in the winning run with no outs in the ninth inning to give the Giants a 7-6 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday. . Roman Josi had a goal and an assist to lead the Predators to a 4-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Monday night. Now that they have a name, the Vegas Golden Knights have to put a team on the ice.The newly named franchise will get its first 30 players through the expansion draft in June, and Vegas general manager George McPhee and colleagues around the NHL are already deep in preparations and mock-ups.Even though McPhee ran the Washington Capitals for 17 seasons, GMs around the NHL dont have any clue how hell piece together the Golden Knights.I dont have any inside knowledge what kind of team theyre planning to have, if its going to be younger or older -- no idea, longtime rival GM Ray Shero of the New Jersey Devils said by phone Wednesday. Hes been a GM for a long time in Washington -- I dont think that comes into play at all in terms of where theyre going to be in Vegas and what kind of player theyre going to be looking for. ... Maybe his opinion of some players has changed and the game where it is now, who knows.McPhee knows. And he knows that even as his front office does monthly mock drafts to prepare, things will change at the March 1 deadline and again before teams must submit their protected lists on June 17.Vegas wont be able to pick from top stars like Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Jonathan Toews or Patrick Kane, and first- and second-year pros like Connor McDavid and Auston Matthews are exempt. The NHL also sent out a preliminary list of 66 players who must be protected because of no-movement clauses in their contracts.Knowing each teams top six or seven players are off the board, McPhee said the Golden Knights scouting staff has certain bubble players to focus on. That could be a moving target as GMs make trades and signings to be expansion-draft compliant and not give up a top player.Theres going to be a massive player redistribution before the expansion draft in the weeks leading up to it, McPhee said. We understand teams are going to try to not give us anything, and thats the way expansion goes. There are a few teams that have expansion stress and we might be able to get a good player from them, and therell be some teams that dont have anything and rather than take a bad contract well take a throwaway pick.Thats one hint from McPhees past: He wont take on burdensome contracts. So dont expect Vegas to rid the Los Angeles Kings of the final five years and $5.875 million saalary-cap hit of former captain Dustin Browns deal, the Devils the final four years and $5. Wholesale Curry Shoes. 75 million cap hit of center Travis Zajacs and the Philadelphia Flyers the final three years and $5 million cap hit of defenseman Andrew MacDonalds.Each team can protect seven forwards and three defensemen, or eight skaters of any position, plus one goalie, and all 30 will lose exactly one player. Even though the best will be protected, it figures to reason that the deepest teams are in the most danger of losing a quality player to Vegas.Take the Chicago Blackhawks, who have eight players with no-movement clauses they must protect and could lose someone like center Marcus Kruger or young defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk. Or the Tampa Bay Lightning, who will protect goaltender of the future Andrei Vasilevskiy and wont be able to keep 6-foot-7 pending free agent Ben Bishop, whether hes traded, taken by Vegas or signed by someone else.It adds another team for you, so I dont think its a bad thing at all, Bishop said of the expansion draft. Even if I wasnt a free agent, theres just that many good goalies in the league now and theres only so many spots.Chicago, Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh, which will have to do something with Marc-Andre Fleury to keep 2016 Stanley Cup-winning goalie Matt Murray, and other contenders like Alex Ovechkins Washington Capitals intend to worry about this season now and the expansion draft later.I think some of ours is contract related and will we be able to bring guys back or not bring guys back, Capitals GM Brian MacLellan said. Were constantly looking at it, but were not making decisions yet because our immediate priority is having a winning season here.One advantage for Vegas is that itll be able to acquire draft picks or prospects in exchange for not selecting certain players. Thats right up McPhees alley, too, as he tries to make good on owner Bill Foleys goal to win the Cup within six years.It all comes down to trying to build a good base but really doing well in the entry draft and getting our top players from the entry draft, McPhee said.---Follow Hockey Writer Stephen Whyno on Twitter at .
