Houston Texans player breaks franchise record, but it ends up worthless

Houston Texans punter Shane Lechler made history in Thursday’s 33-28 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. He sent the franchise Record with a booming 71-yard punt. As John McClain from the Houston Chronicle pointed out, it turned out to be useless. Lechler’s 71-yard punt longest in team history. I’m sure he’s excited about that. It was a touchback. — John McClain (@McClain_on_NFL...

Raiders reaction: Ray Guy deserves HOF more than Tim Brown

Oakland Raiders punter Ray Guy became the first pure punter in the history of the NFL to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
