Did you head to bed before the end of the Texans/Chargers Monday Night Football game last night? If so, we can't even blame you. The Chargers were beating the Texans by two touchdowns entering the fourth quarter and, truth be told, it did not look like it was going to be an exciting end to the game. But as it turns out, you missed a pretty good conclusion to the contest.
The Texans rallied back in the fourth quarter to score 17 points and edge the Chargers 31-28. And how did they do it? Well, they got this outstanding interception by Texans linebacker Brian Cushing that he then returned for a touchdown with about nine minutes left in the game to tie things up. Normally, we would rip Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers here for throwing such a devastating pick on his own end of the field. But Cushing deserves all the credit for making this INT happen. He made a great play and single-handedly helped Houston get back into the ballgame.
Watch the interception in the video above. Almost makes you regret turning in before the end of the game, eh?
