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.
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
With the Denver Broncos now off to a 1-2 to start, people have noticed that Peyton Manning isn’t getting the ball out of his hands the way he used too. In his defense though, he’s still rehabbing, so we know he’s not 100 percent healthy.
One NFL scout told Albert Breer of the NFL Network that “Peyton Manning can’t throw the ball anymore.”
I think that’s a little harsh...
Maybe Peyton Manning should of stayed injured and retired. Not because he is playing bad currently, Manning Sunday versus the Houston Texans was 25/51 for 310 yards with 2 Tds and no picks. But maybe because Matt Schaub threw for four touchdowns and his Broncos defense is a steaming pile. Houston Texans are the real deal at 3-0, but Denver right now looks like an Arena League...
Matt Schaub's day started with a sack for a safety and ended with him getting X-rays on his aching left shoulder. In between, an illegal hit from linebacker Joe Mays sent both his helmet and a piece of his ear flying.
Despite the blood, bruises and bumps, Schaub said he felt pretty darn good.
He drew a bombardment of praise for his toughness from his teammates, his coaches...
DENVER -- Matt Schaub outdueled Peyton Manning even as he fought through a physical pounding that cost him a little piece of his ear. Schaub matched a career best by throwing for four touchdown passes, and the Houston Texans held off the Denver Broncos 31-25 Sunday for the first 3-0 start in the team's 10-year history. Shaking off a sack in the end zone that resulted in...
Matt Schaub lost part of his ear last night during an illegal hit from Broncos line backer Joe Mays. Somehow Schaub only took off one play after the hit and he was right back in there to lead the Texans to a victory of the Broncos. I've seen the helmet fly off a few times in my day, but never a piece of someones ear. Nasty stuff right there.
Matt Schaub lost part of his ear during the Texans' win in Denver on Sunday, and the action isn't going unpunished. Broncos middle linebacker Joe Mays was the guilty party in the gruesome hit that saw Schaub's earlobe cut in half, and now he'll pay the price for his action. Mays will be suspended one game and fined $50,000 for the hit, the NFL announced Tuesday. Mays...
Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub has something in common in boxer Evander Holyfield.
Schaub lost a part of his ear in battle after a brutal helmet-to-helmet sack from the Denver Broncos Joe May left him prone on the field after the play was over.

Broncos pass rusher Von Miller was called for a roughing-the-passer penalty in the third quarter of Sunday's game after hitting Matt Schaub. On the next play, Broncos linebacker Joe Mays hit the Houston Texans' star quarterback with a direct blow to the helmet. Schaub's helmet flew off, and he held his head in his hands. Another penalty.
"I felt fine. I lost a...

Broncos’ Mays Suspended 1 Game For Hit On Schaub -
Broncos LB Joe Mays has apologized for his vicious hit on Texans QB Matt Schaub on Sunday, but the NFL doesn’t think an apology is enough. And the league office doesn’t think a heavy fine is enough, either. Instead, Mays has been suspended for one game for his helmet-to-helmet hit. A source with knowledge of the situations...
TweetNo doubt Eli Manning has yet to reach his brother's status as one of the best quarterbacks ever. But this season may turn out to be the one where people think of the older Manning as Eli's brother, this Denver Broncos fan seems to be on the same wave length. I don't think it can be disputed that the New York Giants QB is more clutch than Peyton Manning ever was.
When Joe Mays laid the wood to Matt Schaub, immediate reaction around the country speculated that Mays would be fined for the incident. However, ESPN is reporting that the NFL is considering suspending Denver Broncos linebacker Joe Mays for the hit that left Matt Schaub missing a chunk of ear. For the Broncos, this couldn't be any worse. The linebacker depth is already thin because...
