Coach’s error picks up Texans

Posted: November 23, 2012 at 3:44 a.m.

Field judge Greg Gautreaux (right) hands the red challenge flag back to Detroit Coach Jim Schwartz during the Lions’ 34-31 overtime loss to the Houston Texans on Thursday in Detroit. Schwartz threw a challenge flag when Houston’s Justin Forsett scored on an 81-yard run in the third quarter. Replays showed Forsett was down near midfield, but Schwartz negated the automatic review by challenging the play and was called for unsportsmanlike conduct.

The Houston Texans took advantage of a big mistake by Detroit Lions Coach Jim Schwartz.
