Houston coach Gary Kubiak, who missed one game while recovering from a mini-stroke, said he will return to the sideline Nov. 17 when the Texans try to break a franchise-record seven-game losing streak.
By Mark Maske Dec. 9 (Washington Post) -- Mike Shanahan's coaching tenure with the Washington Redskins appears closer than ever to ending. Members of the Redskins' front office believe fractures in the relationship between Shanahan and team owner Daniel Snyder are now so deep that they are skeptical Shanahan can remain with the franchise beyond this season, several people familiar with the situation said Sunday. Shanahan's future was cast into doubt as the Redskins suffered a demoralizing, 45-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on a cold and sloppy day before the smallest announced crowd since Fed Ex Field opened in 1997. Some fans threw snowballs toward the Redskins' bench, and one was removed by stadium security personnel for screaming at Shanahan late in the game. Most of the fans who did show up were long gone before the game ended, with the Redskins' record dropping to 3-10 one year after they won the NFC East title.
The Seattle Seahawks beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 27-24 in overtime after the biggest comeback in franchise history, while the New York Jets rebounded from a 40- point loss with a 26-20 upset of the New Orleans Saints.
