The Texans locked up the first overall pick in the 2014 draft Sunday with a 16-10 loss at Tennessee, meaning they lost their final 13 games - along with Coach Gary Kubiak, who was fired Dec. 6. The No. 2 pick goes to St. Louis via Washington. The Redskins traded that pick to the Rams as part of the 2012 deal to draft quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Another Sunday, another NFL record for Peyton Manning. A week after setting the single-season record for passing touchdowns, the Denver quarterback broke Drew Brees' single-season yardage record of 5,476 yards. Late in the second quarter of the Broncos game at Oakland, Manning surpassed that mark. He also threw four touchdown passes in the first half, extending his own record to 55 in a season. New England's Tom Brady is second on that list with 50, achieved in 2007. The Broncos, who led at halftime, 31-0, can clinch the AFC's No. 1 seeding with a victory, locking up home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.

The Las Vegas Bowl could be Dion Bailey's final game for USC. The junior safety has said that he will not decide until after Saturday's game against Fresno State whether to make himself available for the NFL draft or return for his senior season. But on Tuesday, Bailey sounded as if he were leaning toward leaving. Asked whether he knew when he would make his decision, Bailey said, “I'll announce after the bowl game. I don't want to announce before and be a distraction and all that.” Last year, immediately after the Trojans' Sun Bowl loss against Georgia Tech, junior receiver Robert Woods announced he would not return.

Dion Bailey enjoyed a signature moment the last time he played at the Coliseum, the USC safety intercepting a fourth-quarter pass that helped fuel an upset victory over Stanford. Two weeks later, Bailey is preparing for Saturday's game against No. 22 UCLA and what could be his final game at the Coliseum for the Trojans. Bailey, a fourth-year junior, said that he would "most likely" decide before the Trojans' bowl game whether he will make himself available for the NFL draft.
