DENVER (AP) – Matt Schaub outplayed Peyton Manning on Sunday, throwing four touchdown passes against a confused Denver defense to lead the Houston Texans to a 31-25 victory over the Broncos.
Schaub finished 17 for 30 for 290 yards to help Houston move to 3-0 for the first time in franchise history. Six days after throwing three interceptions in the first quarter of a loss to Atlanta, Manning didn’t throw any against the Texans. But just as happened last week, the Broncos fell behind by 20 and lost by six. Manning did get the ball with 20 seconds left this time but didn’t get the Broncos close to the end zone. The Texans improved to 3-16 lifetime against Manning and beat him for the first time in a road game.

DENVER (AP) – Aaron Hill hit a tiebreaking three-run homer in the eighth inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat Colorado 10-7 on Sunday, the Rockies’ season-high ninth straight loss. Arizona remained 4 1/2 games behind St. Louis for the second NL wild-card spot. Wil Nieves had four hits and Hill had three for the Diamondbacks, who have won three straight and six of seven. Wilin Rosario had three hits for the fourth game in a row and DJ LeMahieu also had three hits for the Rockies.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) – The Jets got results of the MRI on Darrelle Revis’ (duh-REHL’-REE’-vihs) injured left knee and it’s not good news. Their star cornerback tore an ACL in New York’s overtime victory at Miami on Sunday and is likely done for the season.

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) – Miami running back Reggie Bush left yesterday’s overtime loss to the Jets with an injured left knee but tweeted today that he “received some great news.” The Dolphins have not issued a status report.

SEATTLE (AP) – A pair of 1-1 teams will be on the field tonight when Seattle hosts Green Bay in the NFL’s Week 3 finale. The Packers are hoping to have star receiver Greg Jennings in the lineup after he missed last week’s game due to a groin injury.

BALTIMORE (AP) – One day after their six-game winning streak was snapped at Boston, the Orioles are home for a twilight doubleheader with Toronto. The Os’ began the day one-game behind first-place New York in the AL East race and hold the league’s No. 1 wild card. The Yankees are at Minnesota tonight.

WASHINGTON (AP) – There’s been a lot of debate about whether it is competitively fair for top teams to rest their starters after clinching a postseason berth. Nationals managers Davey Johnson is in favor of it, saying that if his team nails down the NL East, “I’m resting my regulars. End of conversation.” The Nats are hosting Milwaukee today with a magic number of six.
