Chargers hand Texans first home loss of season

Posted November 28, 2016

The Texans lead the division at 6-5, while the Titans jumped the Colts into second place with a 6-6 record. This changed in the second quarter when a 33 yard deep pass from Brock Osweiler to Will Fuller set up a Osweiler QB sneak for the Texans' first TD, which put them ahead. Rivers answered a 1-yard touchdown plunge by Osweiler with a six-play, 74-yard drive that culminated in a 52-yard pass to Inman, who broke free behind the secondary thanks to a blown coverage that involved safety Quintin Demps.

Brock Osweiler was so bad in a loss to San Diego on Sunday that Houston Texans coach Bill O'Brien was asked twice after the game if he'd considered benching him. Consider him a borderline starter against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.

In what should probably be the cover of next season's media guide, Osweiler faced a third-and-goal from around the 8-yard line, in need of a score, and rather than take a shot in the end zone or something, he threw short to the 3. Rivers threw for 326 yards and three touchdowns, but his four interceptions sealed San Diego's fate for the day.

Eli Manning threw three touchdown passes, including two to Odell Beckham Jr., and the defense forced late turnovers to lead NY past Cleveland for their sixth straight victory. He was initially ruled down, but San Diego challenged the call and it was overturned. "I feel like I left a lot out there on the field that I could have done much better".

He's now second in the SEC in rushing yards behind Rawleigh Williams III , despite not getting a carry in four games this season. Based on what we have seen from them this season, the Crimson Tide should reach the playoff with a flawless record intact.

Rivers has made his share of catastrophic miscues - he has 12 interceptions this season - but he has been far more accurate and dependable. In receiving, Tyrell Williams had 125 yards and a touchdown in five catches while Antonio Gates had 63 yards and a touchdown in four catches. Given the relative strengths of the AFC West and AFC South, you should not be too surprised to find the Chargers going into this game as road favorites. Miller will need to continue this production in order to defeat a Chargers defense that allows only the fifth fewest rush yards per game in the league, at 87.4. The Chargers are 28th in pass defense. Kaepernick passed for three TDs, but the 49ers (1-10) still haven't won since the season opener. Their last 4 games are against Denver, Kansas City, Jacksonville, and finish the season with the Texans.

Running Back Lamar Miller has, however, has been exceeding expectations this season, with 824 yards on the season, and four all-purpose touchdowns.

Hurts, No. 1 Alabama race past No. 16 Auburn, 30-12
While the college football pundits - and the betting odds - all favor the Crimson Tide, advanced analytics point to a closer game. The truth is, even if Alabama somehow gets upset by Florida in Atlanta, this team is still going to the College Football Playoff.
