HOUSTON -- Pro Bowl receiver DeAndre Hopkins couldnt quit smiling Sunday after the Houston Texans 34-24 exhibition victory over the Arizona Cardinals.Hes beginning to see just how good this offense can be now that new quarterback Brock Osweiler is settling into his role.The mindset that we have when we go out there is that we cant be stopped and today kind of showed that, Hopkins said.Osweiler threw for 146 yards and a touchdown and Houston intercepted two of Carson Palmers passes to help the Texans improve to 3-0 in the preseason. The Cardinals are 0-3.Osweiler led the Texans to scores on three of his four drives. He connected with Fuller on a 26-yard touchdown pass that extended Houstons lead to 24-10 before sitting down with about three minutes left in the first half.It was Osweilers second successful outing after he and Houstons starting offense struggled in the teams first preseason game.Were constantly improving, were fixing mistakes and were getting better each week, Osweiler said. Thats really what you want to see at this point in time.While Osweiler was solid, Houstons starting defense starred. Andre Hal intercepted Palmers second pass of the day to set up Houstons first score, a 1-yard touchdown run by new running back Lamar Miller.Palmers second drive was his only clean one, and it ended with a 3-yard touchdown run by David Johnson.On Arizonas next possession, linebacker John Simon tipped a pass by Palmer, intercepted it and returned it 59 yards for a touchdown. It was the second straight game in which Palmer had an interception returned for a touchdown after Brandon Flowers did it in last week in a 9-3 loss at San Diego.Its easy to evaluate that game: its just called turnovers, Arizona coach Bruce Arians said.Palmer attempted to tackle Simon after the interception and was tackled by 305-pound defensive end Devon Still, a hit that knocked the quarterbacks helmet off. Arians had seen enough after that hit, and Palmer was replaced by Drew Stanton.Palmer chipped a tooth on the play.Im fine, he said. It (just) looked bad.Fuller finished with 67 yards receiving and fellow rookie Braxton Miller, the former Ohio State star quarterback, added three receptions for 29 yards. The Texans chose Fuller in the first round this year to take pressure off Hopkins, who was third in the NFL with 1,521 yards receiving last season despite facing near constant double teams.He had two receptions for 31 yards Sunday.INJURY UPDATECardinals: CB Mike Jenkins, who had recently returned after having surgery to repair a broken bone in his right hand, was carted off the field after injuring his right knee in the first quarter. He was injured when he was juked by Hopkins and immediately crumpled to the ground. He appeared to be in a lot of pain as he was helped to the cart, and slammed his right hand on the cart in disgust before he was taken to the locker room. Arians didnt have an update on Jenkins after the game.All-Pro safety Tyrann Mathieu, who came off the physically unable to perform list last week after knee surgery, was expected to play on Sunday, but remained on the sideline in a T-shirt and shorts.Ive been making great strides in my rehab, my recovery ... but I just didnt feel like I was ready to go out there and play the game, he said.Texans: K Nick Novak returned after sitting out most of the week after getting a concussion against the Saints last week. He made a 44-yard field goal in the first quarter and added one from 42 yards in the fourth.CLOWNEY STANDING OUTOutside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney had three tackles and put pressure on Palmer and Stanton often on Sunday, leading Houstons defense with Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt still out after back surgery. The performance comes a week after Clowney sacked Drew Brees for a 14-yard loss in a win over the Saints. The top overall pick in the 2014 draft is looking for a breakout year after failing to produce in his first two injury-plagued seasons.I just want to stay on the field all season, he said. Thats it.POSITION BATTLESCardinals: Jenkins had been among three players the mix to start at cornerback opposite star Patrick Peterson. If his injury is as severe as it appears, Arians will now have just Brandon Williams and Justin Bethel as candidates for the job.Texans: C Greg Mancz started at center on Sunday in the position left open when rookie second-round pick Nick Martin had season-ending ankle surgery this week. But he struggled with some protections on Sunday, leaving open the possibility that offseason free agent acquisition Tony Bergstrom could get another shot at the job.QUOTABLECardinals: Palmer on if his chipped tooth will make him look tougher: Im not looking for street cred right now.Texans: Simon in response to teammates saying he looked slow on his interception return: I was able to get into the end zone without getting caught, so thats whats important.ROOKIE WATCHCardinals: Undrafted free-agent Chris Hubert had a 43-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter.Texans: Fourth-round pick Tyler Ervin looks to have solidified his position as the teams kick returner after returning one for 58 yards on Sunday. Irvin also had two carries for 13 yards and a 20-yard reception.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Hydro Flask Clearance . 1 position.

Cuban testified Thursday that he was upset when the companys CEO told him news that would reduce the value of his shares, for which hed paid $7.5 million.

It was their fifth series win in a row but their first in four attempts against England with their previous series victory back in 2008.They wrapped up victory in eight overs on the final morning in Mumbai - their 17th unbeaten Test in a row, which equalled their best run - as R Ashwin took the remaining four wickets to finish with 12 in the match. However, it was Kohli who was named Man of the Match for his career-best 235 which helped India come from behind and claim a lead of 231.This series win is probably the sweetest of all weve won in the past 14-15 months, Kohli said in the post-match presentation. It couldnt get any better, in the Wankhede you win 3-0 against a top quality side that has beaten us convincingly. It feels really good.Anil Kumble, Indias coach, praised his teams ability to win from difficult situations citing the three lost tosses they have responded to and the middle-order wobbles that the lower order have helped rescue. He was reluctant to compare this India team with others in history, but said the current side was special.You cant really compare different eras or different teams, he said. But this team, certainly, is the No. 1 team in the world today and it has the potential to become the best ever Test team in terms of results. The team was exceptional in terms of the intensity shown on the field, in terms of situational awareness and coming out from difficult situations in this series and even against New Zealand as well. Everyone has contributed to the teams success and thats the beauty about this team. I dont really like to compare, but this team is certainly special and Im really privileged to be part of this set up as well.Kohli revealed he had a few nerves when England had posted 400 having won the toss, but was confident that they could take control of the game and exploit the fact that England had only selected two frontline spinners alongside four quicks - something Alastair Cook admitted had been a mistake.I was pretty ffocussed on this game, Kohli said.dddddddddddd We were 2-0 up with a chance to seal the series so we can go to Chennai and express ourselves. The plan was to get stuck in, I got away immediately and sometimes that happens that you get boundaries and the nerves calm down. I wouldnt say I wasnt nervous, I indeed was especially when there was 400 on the board. After we had that bit of a collapse I buckled down again, not getting satisfied, I knew I had to score many more for us to be in a commanding position.I felt the advantage we had was that England had a spinner less and those two guys [Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid] really got tired by the end of it after 50-plus overs. We knew bad balls would come our way. If you dont bowl your fast bowlers on a regular basis on pitches like these they lose confidence and when they come on they are thinking of stopping runs instead of taking wickets. Thats something we sensed and went after them hard.Pressed further on the difference between the teams, Kohli provided some detailed thoughts on the different mindsets of the two batting sides. England have often spoken about an aggressive outlook, but Kohli felt that was because they did not have the belief in their defensive capabilities in Indian conditions.Its about the application, he said. Their batsmen have hardly blocked six balls in a row and weve worked on our defence. Its very important playing in India, if you dont have a good defence in India its very difficult to counter the type of bowling we have. We sensed they dont have enough faith in the way they went about their business, even the second innings here was a lot of shots and we knew it was just a matter of time that wed get a couple of wickets and it would crumble. They arent sure about taking the innings long. As soon as we plugged the boundaries they had no way out because our bowlers are very consistent. Weve worked on our defence and thrive on it. We enjoy thinking of it. ' ' '
