DETROIT - The Houston Texans took advantage of a big mistake by Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz. Shayne Graham's 32-yard field goal with 2:21 left in overtime lifted Houston to a 34-31 win over Detroit on Thursday after Schwartz broke an NFL rule on a scoring play. Detroit kicker Jason Hanson had a chance to get Schwartz off the hook, but his 47-yard field-goal attempt on the fifth possession of the extra period hit the right upright. Schwartz threw a challenge flag when Houston's Justin Forsett scored on an 81-yard touchdown run in the third quarter.

The referee made the correct call when he assessed an unsportsmanlike-conduct penalty on Chris Pronger and negated an overtime goal Friday that would have given the Flyers a 3-2 win over the Calgary Flames, an NHL official said on Sunday. Referee Ghislain Hebert, who has a split NHL/AHL contract, ruled that Pronger waved his arm in front of Flames goalie Miikka Kiprusoff and gave the defenseman a penalty. The Flyers eventually lost in a shoot-out, 3-2. Replays showed Pronger with his arm raised and quickly brought down - and no penalty called until three seconds later, after Mike Richards' shot went past the goalie.
