BENGALS-COLTS

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Andrew Luck threw two touchdown passes and the Colts' defense dominated Cincinnati in Sunday's 27-0 victory.

Luck was 27 of 42 for 344 yards as Indianapolis (5-2) won its fifth straight. It was Indy's first shutout since December 2008.

Cincinnati (3-2-1), which hasn't won since starting 3-0, endured its first shutout since December 2009 and had a franchise record tying 11 punts Sunday. Andy Dalton was 18 of 38 for 126 yards.

Indy churned out 506 yards, struck early and pulled away late.

Bradshaw's 1-yard TD run made it 10-0 in the second quarter and Luck threw two second-half TD passes to make it 24-0.

Colts linebacker Erik Walden was ejected in the first half for making contact with umpire Bruce Stritesky.

COLTS-WALDEN EJECTED

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Colts linebacker Erik Walden was ejected from the Cincinnati game after making contact with umpire Bruce Stritesky late in the first half.

He was assessed a 15-yard personal foul penalty and escorted to the sideline by referee Gene Steratore. The play gave Cincinnati its initial first down of the half with 48 seconds to go.

Walden was in the middle of the field and appeared to have one arm raised across from a Bengals player. But the other arm appeared to be in the chest of Stritesky between the players.

A flag was immediately thrown. At halftime, Colts coach Chuck Pagano told a local radio station he thought it was accidental but that he had not seen it.

NFL-SCHEDULE

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Two .500 teams are squaring off in the NFL game this evening. In Pittsburgh, the Steelers are playing host to the Houston Texans. This is just the fifth game between these teams with the series split at 2-2. Each team is coming off a loss as the Steelers lost to the Browns 31-10 while the Texans were taken out by the Colts 33-28.

The Texans have lost two straight after a 3-1 start to the season while the Steelers have alternated wins and losses for their record.

NFL-BILLS

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson says he expects to be out for about four weeks with a groin injury. Jackson told WGR radio that doctors gave him that prognosis.

Jackson was hurt in the Bills' 17-16 win Sunday over the Vikings. Fellow running back C.J. Spiller also was carted off during the game after injuring his shoulder. His injury is potentially season-ending.

WORLD SERIES

KANSAS CITY (AP) -- The wait is almost over. The opening game of the World Series is just a day away.

Game 1 for the Giants and Royals will be played tomorrow night in Kansas City with James Shields getting the ball for the home team against Madison Bumgarner. Shields is getting the opening game assignment for the third time this post season, while Bumgarner, who was named NLCS MVP, hasn't allowed a postseason run away from home in an MLB-record 26 2/3 innings. That record goes back to 2010.

The Royals advanced with a four-game sweep of the Orioles in the American League Championship Series while the Giants eliminated the Cardinals in five games to win the NLCS.

Game 2 in the best-of-seven series will be Wednesday night in Kansas City before the series moves to San Francisco.
