Winners and Losers: Sept. 20, 2010


WINNER: Schaub burns ‘Skins

Hard to say there was a loser on Sunday at FedEx. Matt Schaub threw for 497 yards in leading the Houston Texans to a come-from-behind 30-27 overtime victory over the Washington Redskins, who did everything but put Houston away in the fourth quarter.

Graham Gano had a chip-shot field goal blocked that would have given the ‘Skins a 10-point lead late, and Donovan McNabb just overshot Joey Galloway on what would have been a long, long touchdown pass in advance of the game-tying drive led by Schaub in the game’s final two minutes.

Props to Schaub for his play down the stretch.

Raise your hand, by the way, if you, like me, hate the rule that allowed Gary Kubiak to call timeout an instant before Gano’s apparent game-winning field goal in OT.
