HOUSTON — Deshaun Watson’s stellar play has given the Houston Texans their first winning streak of the season.Watson threw for 318 yards and tied a season high with four touchdown passes to help the Texans beat the Lions 41-25 on Thanksgiving for their second straight win. Watson has two straight 300-yard games and has thrown 15 TD passes without an interception in the past six games.“Deshaun is a tremendous athlete, a good leader, got good weapons that he can use whenever he chooses to,” interim coach Romeo Crennel said. “And he spreads the ball around many times. And then you’ve got to give some credit to the guys up front here. Those guys, if they give him time, he’s able to make plays.”Watson ranks third in the NFL with 3,201 yards passing and his 68.9% completion rate is sixth.His leadership has also been important as the Texans try to make the most out of this tough season. Houston opened the season 0-4 before coach Bill O’Brien was fired but has gone 4-3 since then in large part because of Watson’s steady play.He’s remained upbeat and optimistic even as the team has struggled and is focused on helping Houston finish the season strong.“We’ve just got to keep that momentum, this energy going and, we’ve got to make sure that we remember these moments in these times after a win because it feels really, really good,” Watson said. “So we don’t want to feel that the losing atmosphere in that locker room, we want to keep being positive, keep going out there and keep stacking (wins).”Watson's job will be more difficult for the rest of the season after star receiver Will Fuller announced Monday that he had been suspended for six games for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs.Fuller announced the suspension on Instagram on Monday, saying that it was from a medication he was prescribed that he believed to be permitted, but that was banned under the league’s policy.He has been Houston's best receiver in the first season since DeAndre Hopkins was traded to Arizona and had a career-high 879 yards receiving and eight touchdowns this year. He was coming off his best game of the season, with 171 yards receiving and two scores against the Lions.The suspension leaves Houston's receiving group rather thin after veteran Kenny Stills was released last week and with Randall Cobb on the injured list with a toe injury. Cobb ranks third on the team with 441 yards receiving.Fuller's suspension leaves Brandin Cooks, who has 719 yards receiving, as Watson's top remaining target.WHAT’S WORKINGHouston’s defence has been much better against the run in the past two games after giving up 231 yards rushing in a loss to the Browns on Nov. 15. The Texans allowed 109 yards rushing against the Lions after limiting the Patriots to just 86. But they’re still looking to do more in a season where they rank 31st by giving up 154.7 yards rushing a game.“Guys are beginning to gain more confidence in what they’re able to do and how they’re going about it,” Crennel said. “Hopefully, we’ll keep improving as we wind down the season.”WHAT NEEDS HELPWhile the run defence has gotten better, Houston’s running game continues to be the biggest weakness on the team. The Texans managed just 77 yards rushing on Thursday with 24 coming from Watson’s scrambling. Houston has had 100 yards rushing just three times this season and ranks 31st in the NFL with 83.9 yards rushing a game.STOCK UPILB Tyrell Adams is a former practice squad player who has developed into one of Houston’s best linebackers this season. The undrafted free agent tied the franchise record for most tackles in a game with a career-high 17 against the Lions. He also forced two fumbles in the win to become just the fourth player since 1994 with at least 17 tackles and two forced fumbles in a game.STOCK DOWNRB Duke Johnson continues to struggle while filling in for injured running back David Johnson. He had just 37 yards rushing against the Lions in his third start since Johnson was injured.INJUREDCrennel said Johnson could return this week after missing three games since getting a concussion.KEY NUMBER13 — Numerous Detroit fans donated $13 each to Watson’s foundation as a thank you to the Texans for beating the Lions and hastening coach Matt Patricia’s firing, according to NFL.com. The $13 donation was a nod to Patricia’s 13-29 record with the Lions. Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn were fired on Saturday after the team's terrible performance against the Texans.NEXT STEPSThe Texans will look for their third straight win on Sunday when they face AFC South foe Indianapolis in the first of two meetings in three weeks with the Colts.The Colts rank fifth in the NFL in total defence and will be a test for Watson and an offence that has performed well in the past two games as Houston has piled up 68 points.___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFLKristie Rieken, The Associated Press
Two Halifax Transit bus drivers refused to work last week after multiple passengers entered their buses without wearing masks, renewing union calls to enforce Nova Scotia's mandatory mask rule."Both operators refused," Ken Wilson, the president of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 508 which represents Halifax Transit workers, said in an interview with CBC's Mainstreet Monday. "One refused Thursday evening and another operator refused Friday evening."It was about passengers not wearing masks and so under the [Occupational Health Safety] Act, the operators have the right to refuse unsafe work." Masks became mandatory on all transit buses and ferries in July, but there are no penalties in place for not complying.Individuals don't have to wear a mask if they have a medical condition that keeps them from doing so."There are very few valid medical reasons to not wear a mask," Dr. Robert Strang, the province's chief medical officer of health, said in July when masks were made mandatory.Wilson said about 90 per cent of passengers wear masks, but it's the others who concern drivers."We're not allowed to enforce or to advise — we're to take everybody at face value that if they say they have a medical condition, they do," he said.He says the municipality should start enforcing mask use on public transit to protect drivers and passengers."The confusing part is that we can deny entry to someone not wearing a pair of shoes or not wearing a shirt but when you don't have a mask, you have to take a seat and that doesn't make sense and that's the problem," he said.Wilson said the transit drivers refused to operate their buses because they felt unsafe amid a resurgence of COVID-19, which has brought on community spread."My operators, my members are stressed. They've been on the front lines for over 10 months. I don't think anybody thought this is going to go this long. Now it could be almost another year before we get a vaccine in this part of the region," Wilson said."People are COVID-fatigued. They're stressed. They're worried about bringing this home to their families ... and it's really opened my eyes to the way we're being treated as workers for the transit agency."A spokesperson with Halifax Transit said "the obligation to wear a mask rests with the individual" and there are no plans to change the current protocol."Halifax Transit will continue to adhere to public health guidelines regarding education and enforcement of the use of masks," Erin DiCarlo, a spokesperson for Halifax Transit, said in an emailed statement Monday."Operators may remind passengers of the requirement to wear a mask, but passengers who are not wearing a mask will not be denied entry, as some passengers may have medical reasons that prevent them from wearing one."MORE TOP STORIES
The U.S. Navy has announced that it plans to scrap the USS Bonhomme Richard and not repair the amphibious assault ship ravaged by a major fire in San Diego in July. "After thorough consideration, the secretary of the Navy and the chief of naval operations have decided to decommission the Bonhomme Richard due to the extensive damage sustained during that July fire," Rear Adm. Eric H. Ver Hage, commander of the Navy Regional Maintenance Center, told reporters on an audio-only news conference Monday. In the end, those costs appeared to be just as expensive -- and would take as long -- as a future purchase of a new modern amphibious assault ship.
The first ballooned over the crossbar. The second was a dreadful attempt at a “Panenka” that flopped into the goalkeeper’s arms. The third flew off target because of an unfortunate slip.Three embarrassing penalty misses have summed up Fulham’s miserable start to life back in the English Premier League, so hopes weren’t exactly high when the team was awarded another against Leicester on Monday.This time, no mistake.Ivan Cavaleiro — one of the spot kick culprits from previous matches — stepped up and curled his effort high into the net for a goal that ultimately proved the winner at King Power Stadium.A 2-1 victory was only Fulham’s second in 10 games since promotion back to the top-flight and it lifted the team out of the relegation zone.It also ended Fulham’s penalty nightmare.“I didn’t feel pressure,” said Cavaleiro, who slipped before shanking a penalty over the bar in last week’s 3-2 home loss to Everton. “That happens in football and the manager just gave me confidence to take it and I did.”A penalty proved to be pivotal in Monday’s late match, with Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins hitting the bar with a second-half effort to allow West Ham to hold on for a 2-1 win at its Olympic Stadium and climb to fifth place.Watkins also had a stoppage-time goal ruled out by the video assistant referee when his outstretched arm was adjudged to have made him offside before he turned in a cross from the left. It was an agonizing wait for Watkins and Villa's players as the VAR deliberated over the narrow decision for nearly three minutes, drawing lines on the screen.“We’ve had a goal disallowed for a part of the body that can't score a goal anyway,” Villa manager Dean Smith said.Leicester missed the chance to move level on points with first-placed Tottenham and second-placed Liverpool. Villa could have jumped into the top four with a win.DIOP TRIBUTEAfter one of the team's goals, Fulham's players paid tribute to former player Papa Boupa Diop following his death.Ademola Lookman went to the touchline and held up Senegal’s No. 19 jersey worn by Diop after scoring the 30th-minute opener at King Power Stadium with a low shot thanks to being played through by André-Frank Anguissa.Diop, fondly nicknamed “Wardrobe” during his time at Fulham, played for the southwest London team from 2004-07. His death was announced on Sunday.Cavaleiro added a second goal for the visitors in the 38th after Christian Fuchs tripped Bobby De Cordova Reid.Leicester struggled to break through the worst defence in the league, with an 86th-minute goal from substitute Harvey Barnes all the team could manage.SLEEPY VILLAWest Ham took advantage of Villa's slow starts in each half to score their goals.Angelo Ogbonna headed home inside the first two minutes from a corner by Jarrod Bowen, who scored the second less than a minute into the second half by flicking in a header from halftime sub Said Benrahma.Jack Grealish scored with a deflected shot between those goals for Villa, which dominated the second half.___More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/Soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports___Steve Douglas is at https://twitter.com/sdouglas80Steve Douglas, The Associated Press

Newly detained immigrants must appear before a judge within 10 days, rather than the weeks or months they’ve sometimes had to endure in recent years, a judge said Monday. Civil rights groups praised the ruling by U.S. District Judge Alison J. Nathan as the first of its kind in the nation to set such a rule for the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agency. The judge said a law authorizing the detention of immigrants while removal proceedings are pending “does not negate class members’ interests — of the utmost importance — in freedom from imprisonment.”
