INDIANAPOLIS -- It wasn't long before Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck discovered the location of Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb . Once Luck found Webb, he began regularly peppering the veteran cornerback with a series of short-to-intermediate passes to his receivers. Webb allowed no touchdown passes or deep completions, but Luck completed several passes on him for first downs during the Colts' 20-13 win on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. That included the bulk of wide receiver Reggie Wayne 's seven catches for 77 yards along with a 16-yard completion to wide receiver Hakeem Nicks in the fourth quarter two plays before Luck rushed for a 13-yard touchdown.

In his recurring dream, Jose Villegas still gets up in the predawn darkness at his Carroll County farmhouse, loads his riding helmet and boots into the trunk of his Toyota Corolla and drives 75 minutes to Laurel Park. His favorite part of the dream comes next. As the sun rises over the track, the former jockey and longtime exercise rider is in the saddle, feeling the rush of wind on his face. He grew up around horses in Mexico, and riding made him feel he was home. But when he awakens in the morning, Villegas, 43, faces his stark new reality.

News item: Orioles No. 1 starter Jeremy Guthrie got bounced around by the Texas Rangers in his most recent start and now is 3-11 with a 4.23 ERA. He is on pace to be the losingest pitcher in baseball for the second time in the past three seasons, despite a respectable career ERA and solid statistical ratios. My take: It's time to let the guy go somewhere he can have some success. He's still a valuable pitcher with a quality arm, but he's wasting away in Baltimore and he isn't going to change the outcome of this season one way or the other.

Don't tell the San Diego Chargers they were lucky to beat the Denver Broncos when a pass slipped out of John Elway's hands near the goal line in the final 35 seconds Sunday night.After reviewing the videotape of the Chargers' 37-34 victory when linebacker Junior Seau grabbed the ball that slipped out of Elway's hands as he tried to throw from the Chargers' 3-yard line and pull out one of his trademark late wins, Chargers coach Bobby Ross said the mishap was due to good pressure by his team.

When a character in Poseidon announces he isn't called "Lucky" for nothing, you just know he'll be pulped in seconds. Audiences snort when he comes to an abrupt and mangled end. They're trying to signal that it's time to retire "luck" as a gimmick from pop culture. As the poor man's version of destiny, "luck" has been overused so long it's lost any magical charm or even the tang of cheap irony. On the lighter side, Just My Luck, the new Lindsay Lohan romance, follows a chic Manhattanite whose good fortune ends when she kisses a bad-luck boy at a masquerade party.

Select an immediate standout early, an eventual starter or two later, then round out the class with a few rookie free-agent gems. For much of Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome's tenure, that's been his blueprint on draft day. "Once you start out [by drafting] two Hall of Famers in Jonathan Ogden and Ray Lewis, it's kind of hard not to go downhill from there," joked former Ravens head coach Brian Billick, now an NFL Network analyst. "But downhill is still pretty darn good. " The NFL draft is an inexact science.

Washington College's starting attack of senior Jim Cusick, freshman Owen Evans and junior Sam Birnbaum has combined for eight goals and five assists in the team's 2-0 start, but the unit has encountered its fair share of hurdles. After opening several eyes with a two-goal, three-assist performance in a 16-7 rout of Goucher on Feb. 22, Evans was shut out in Saturday's 15-8 walloping of then-No. 15 Washington and Lee. Birnbaum scored his first goal of the season for the Shoremen - who moved from No. 8 to No. 7 in the latest United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association poll - against the Generals, but that was it. With senior J.D. Campbell (three goals and two assists in 2014)

The gleaming new Horseshoe Casino Baltimore that greets visitors entering the city on Russell Street rises from gritty surroundings, flanked by a Holiday Inn Express and a concrete bunker-like block of storage units. Those two neighboring properties tell different stories about the possibility of a casino-powered transformation of the gas station-lined corridor, which links the Baltimore-Washington Parkway and Interstate 95 with M&T Bank Stadium, Camden Yards and downtown. The hotel owners and others say the $442 million casino will put the Carroll Camden section of South Baltimore on the map and hope it will bring spillover development to the largely industrial area.

It was windy enough that Henry Sloss could barely get the lure into the water because it kept blowing back toward him when he cast it. When it did hit the water, though, it eventually came back out along with a 24.25-inch pickerel. That fish was the longest caught in the first month of the Coastal Conservation Association's 3rd Annual Pickerel Championship, which began December 15 and will conclude March 15. Sloss, 72, is an English professor who fishes as a hobby and considers himself to be an amateur.

COLLEGE PARK - Mark Turgeon has often said that good teams need to win conference games on the road. But the Maryland men's basketball head coach might have added this corrollary: First, you need to establish dominance on your home floor. That suddenly has become an issue for the Terps, who entered the season with a 29-game winning streak against nonconference opponents at Comcast Center.  Saturday's 83-77 loss to Boston University was Maryland's second nonleague loss at home this season.

When you look back on the way the Ravens won their last three games, it's hard not to start thinking in cosmic terms. This invariably leads to the use of words like "destiny" and "karma" to explain the strange and wonderful confluence of events that saved this season - at least so far. The players and coaches prefer the word "faith," though more in the context of confidence in each other than divine providence. No one is running around proclaiming that God is a Ravens fan, but you still get the feeling there is a team-wide belief that good things will happen to those who have trust in whatever it is that keeps pulling them back from the brink.

French wines run out of luckFrance's good luck, which culminated in three great vintages from 1988 to 1990, has apparently come to an end.According to Robert M. Parker Jr., publisher of the Wine Advocate, the 1992 vintage ended with "major problems in a lot of viticultural areas of France."Storms brought flooding to much of the south of the country at harvest time, he noted during a talk at the American Heart Association's Fine Wine Auction Oct. 4.In Bordeaux, the rains followed a summer plagued by high humidity and rampant rot."

The Ravens had so much luck a year ago that it appeared to all have run out. There was the fourth-and-mile check down pass to Ray Rice in San Diego and the Mile High Miracle pass to Jacoby Jones in the postseason. When the 2013 season began, the Ravens had the early injury to tight end Dennis Pitta and a promising offensive line failed. They couldn't convert on several short yardage situations and head coach John Harbaugh looked like he wouldn't win many challenges until 2014. And then came Sunday.

Like her colleagues at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Tiffany House packed up her desk last week hoping the government shutdown would last only a few days. But the single mom from Hyattsville will be in a position different from her co-workers when the agency reopens. Because House works for NOAA through a private contractor, she isn't likely to receive retroactive pay. As Congress considers legislation to provide back pay to an estimated 800,000 furloughed federal workers , far less attention has been paid to contract employees - many of whom work side by side with their agency counterparts.
