    in the third quarter for the Raiders for h

    Winning a Super Bowl [You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login] , or just about any sports championship for that matter, is a team effort. While it’s no coincidence that the very best players and the teams they play on tend to rise to the top, we’ve seen numerous incidents of “no-name” championship squads that just go to confirm that the top of the world tends to be reserved for those that are able to work together and become even greater than the sum of their parts.Yet, when the career of every great player is being measured, the same question always comes up. “How many championships did they win?” There is nothing sadder in the NFL than an all-time great individual talent that was never able to win the Super Bowl. While the failure to win a championship may not override everything else a player accomplishes in their career, it does forever stand as that one nagging deficiency that they wish they could go back and correct somehow. It happens to great players in every generation [You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login] , and this one is no exception. There will be great, modern NFL players that manage to hoist that Super Bowl trophy and wear a championship ring. Specifically, these are the top 15 current NFL players who will never win a Super Bowl. OAKLAND, Calif. — The Indianapolis Colts appear to have a potent running game, an offensive line that can protect and a record-setting kicker.Combined all that with a healthy Andrew Luck and the results are impressive.Luck threw his third touchdown pass of the game to break a tie with 5:28 to go, Adam Vinatieri set the career scoring mark and the Colts beat the Oakland Raiders 42-28 on Sunday to win in back-to-back weeks for the first time in three years.“I think we’re believing it now [You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login] , I really do,” Luck said. “I think we’re proving to ourselves that we can do it, that this is a winning formula.”Marlon Mack ran for a career-high 132 yards and two touchdowns, breaking the personal mark he set last week against Buffalo with 126 yards. The Colts finished with 222 yards rushing and didn’t allow a sack for the third straight game as the investments made in the offensive line are paying off.The Colts are the first team since the 1970 merger to go consecutive games with at least 200 yards rushing, no sacks and no giveaways.“I think you’d like to establish your identity in Week 1 and get that going right from the start,” coach Frank Reich said. “On offense [You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login] , it’s taken us a few weeks to get that going, but right now I like where we’re at.”Mack’s second TD came after Doug Martin lost a fumble for Oakland and sealed the victory as the Colts won in consecutive weeks for the first time in three years.Luck connected with all three of his tight ends with the 10-yard pass to Jack Doyle putting the Colts (3-5) up 35-28. Luck connected earlier in the game on passes to Mo Alie-Cox and Eric Ebron and finished with 239 yards against an overmatched defense for the Raiders (1-6).Derek Carr threw three TD passes and ran for a fourth just days after Oakland traded his top receiver Amari Cooper to Dallas. But it wasn’t enough to prevent another loss in what is quickly becoming a lost season to begin coach Jon Gruden’s second stint with the team.“I’m not going to give up. Period,” Gruden said. “I just hope Raiders fans out there understand we’re doing everything we can. I know it gets ugly at times, but in a lot of ways I’m excited about the future.”The Colts started fast with Mo Alie-Cox making a one-handed 26-yard touchdown catch and Vinatieri adding a field goal to make it 10-0 before the Raiders finally found their stride.“He swallowed the ball with his hands,” Luck said. “It was truly like there was a gravitational pull flopped it in there. What an awesome job our tight ends group does to complement this offense, complement the wideouts and to complement each other.”Carr threw a pair of touchdown passes in the second quarter to put Oakland on top and added a 1-yard sneak for a score on fourth down to make it 21-13 early in the third.The game went back and forth from there with Luck tying it with a 20-yard touchdown pass to Eric Ebron and a 2-point conversion pass to Chester Rogers.Carr then avoided a sack before finding Brandon LaFell for a 6-yard touchdown late in the third before the Colts tied it back up early in the fourth on Mack’s 4-yard run.100<button class="view-gallery">View Gallery</button> Gallery:View from the sidelines: NFL cheerleaders 2018Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports | Raj MehtaMOST POINTS IN NFL HISTORYVinatieri set the record as the NFL’s top all-time scorer in the first half. He kicked a 26-yard field goal in the first quarter to tie Morten Andersen with 2 [You are not allowed to view links.

Vinatieri scored three more points, giving him 2,550 for his career.“He’d done it for so long and for so many years and so prolifically, that I just thought, ‘Man, it’s untouchable.'” Vinatieri said. “But I guess as you keep going [You are not allowed to view links.

Oakland hadn’t had a quarterback run for a TD since Terrelle Pryor scored on a 93-yard run against Pittsburgh on Oct. 27, 2013. Only the Chargers had gone longer without a TD run for a QB.“I had a dance planned, but they threw a flag,” Carr said. “I’ll have to get another one.”BACK TO BACKMack followed up last week’s big game with another strong performance. This is just the sixth time the Colts have had a 100-yard rusher during Luck’s seven NFL seasons and the first time since Joseph Addai did it in 2007 that a back topped the century mark in consecutive games.INJURIESThe Raiders lost backup OL T.J.
