Houston, Texas (PRWEB) September 11, 2013
On the first Monday night football of the 2013 regular season, the Houston Texans rallied from a 21-point deficit to beat the San Diego Chargers 31-28. Not only did the Texans come back from being behind by three touchdowns, but the team was also playing on San Diego turf. The first quarter started off evenly, with a score of 7-7 by the end of it. The second quarter, however, is where the Texans fell behind. The Chargers scored 14 points before the half, while the Texans scored zero. Texans Quarterback Matt Schaub remained confident though, and brought his team back to win it all. With 9:30 left to play in the contest, Brian Cushing returned an interception 18 yards to get the final touchdown and tie the game. By the final buzzer, kicker Randy Bullock kicked a 41-yard field goal to put the Texans ahead by 3 points and take the win.
After having back to back division titles and playoff trips, the Texans know how to stay calm and keep composure when behind. Schaub has proved himself to be a great quarterback and good leader for the team. The Texans defense proved well in the win as well, holding the Chargers to only 90 yards in the entire second half. Chargers quarterback Phillip Rivers started off very well. He threw four touchdown passes on the night, and the San Diego offense had a touchdown just 15 seconds into the game to give themselves a 7-0 lead. The Chargers are now under charge of new head coach Mike McCoy, who was the Broncos coach last year. It was only the first game, but McCoy seems to have an inventive offense tactic for his team. The Chargers are hoping McCoy does a better job than Norv Turner, who blew multiple halftime leads last season. McCoy knows his team put in the effort needed last night, but they need to learn to finish football games, the way the Texans do.
The Texans next game will be played on Sunday, September 15, at 1:00PM at home. They will be playing the Tennessee Titans, who they beat twice last season.
