During the second quarter of the Texans and Chargers Monday Night Football game, Andre Johnson (and the Houston Texans’ social media folks) thought that Andre had a long touchdown after refs ruled on the field that he hadn’t been touched down by a defender. However, after a review the refs called the pass a completion, but not a touchdown. It appears that the Texans official Twitter account got a bit too excited after the ruling on the field and Tweeted that it was a touchdown. As any savvy competitor would do, the Chargers social media folks took the opportunity to have a simple yet effective jab to the Texans which you can see below. The Texans deleted the Tweet shortly thereafter and replaced it with: “After further review, Johnson was down. Gain of 27 by Texans for a 1st down. #TexansGameday” NOPE. RT @HoustonTexans: TOUCHDOWN ANDRE JOHNSON!!!!! #HOUvsSD — San Diego Chargers (@chargers) September 10, 2013 Another subtle jab was landed about 20 minutes later. TOUCHDOWN, GATES! #HOUvsSD — San Diego Chargers (@chargers) September 10, 2013 Article found on: Next Impulse Sports
