NFL: Texans rally from 21 down to stun Chargers
Sure, the San Diego Chargers were off to a solid start for their new coach.
The veteran Texans know how to finish.
Randy Bullock kicked a 41-yard field goal as time expired, and Houston rallied from a 21-point deficit in the second half for a 31-28 victory over the Chargers on Monday night in San Diego.
"Once you put a score on the board, then another, and the defense gets a stop, the big turnover, it just builds," said Schaub, who bounced back from an interception on Houston's first play to pass for 346 yards. "Momentum keeps building, and you can feel that energy, and it's contagious."
Brian Cushing returned an interception 18 yards for the tying touchdown with 9 minutes, 30 seconds to play for the Texans, who erased a 28-7 deficit late in the third quarter to spoil the debut of Chargers coach Mike McCoy.
Danny Trevathan swears he's snuffed out the showboat in him.
Denver's second-year linebacker blames excitement over his first NFL start for his premature celebration of a sure pick-six that resulted in a touchback instead of a touchdown in the Broncos' Week 1 rout of the Ravens.
"It was a young mistake. I was just in the moment," Trevathan said. "I thought I was in the end zone. Next time I'm going to hold the ball up high and give it to a fan or something."
Lions' Suh fined 100K
Detroit star Ndamukong Suh has been fined $100,000 by the NFL for his illegal low block in the season-opening victory over the Minnesota Vikings last weekend.
NFL spokesman Randall Liu says vice president of football operations Merton Hanks notified the Detroit defensive tackle of the fine. Suh hit Vikings center John Sullivan during an interception return, drawing a penalty that negated a touchdown by Detroit linebacker DeAndre Levy.
Suh said he wasn't going after Sullivan's knees, adding that the two discussed the play at halftime. Detroit players said Suh apologized to the team.
The NFL fined Suh $30,000 last year for unnecessary roughness when he kicked Houston quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin area.
