San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers said he is "sick" that his team is 0-1 following the 31-28 loss to the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football.

San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers said he is "sick" that his team is 0-1 following the 31-28 loss to the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football. 

The Chargers were in control up to the third quarter, even leading by as many as 21, 28-7. However, they managed to squander the lead and lose on a 41-yard Randy Bullock field goal with no time left.

Once the ball sailed through the uprights, ESPN's Bill Williamson writes "there wasn't much shock in Qualcomm Stadium. It just seemed like a typical ending."   

Rivers says it's tough enough to lose, but it hurts even more when the Chargers lost the way they did. 

"Every game stings that you lose. You lose this way, and it stings a little more. I'm sick that we're not 1-0. But it is just one game. We've got 15 more."

He got the Chargers off to a good start with his four touchdown passes -- one to Ryan Matthews, two to Eddie Royal and one to Vincent Brown. 

However, the veteran Texans came roaring back. 

Garrett Graham caught a seven-yard pass from Texans quarterback Matt Schaub for a touchdown in the third quarter. Schaub struck again early in the fourth with a nine-yard score to tight end Owen Daniels which cut the deficit to 28-21. 

The game's turning point came with 9:30 left to play when Houston inside linebacker Brian Cushing picked off Rivers and returned the interception for a touchdown, knotting the score at 28 apiece. 

Schaub then engineered a 36-yard drive to set up Bullock's game-winning field goal. 

Rivers finished 14 of 29 for 195 yards while Schaub went 34 of 45 for 346 yards and three touchdown passes of his own.
