FOXBOROUGH Jonathan Stewart Jersey , Mass. (AP) — Tyrann Mathieu intercepted Tom Brady’s pass and also recovered a fumble Sunday against the New England Patriots.

Not good enough, if you ask the Houston Texans safety.

“Yeah, I touched the leather, but I didn’t touch the end zone,” Mathieu said after the 27-20 loss in the opener. “We lost by seven points, so that’s how I look at it and how I judge myself.”

A free agent who signed with the Texans after spending the first five years of his career in Arizona, Mathieu was Houston’s biggest offseason acquisition. The signing seemed to pay off in his very first game.

Brady dropped back near his own goal line and took aim for running back James White across the middle. But defensive lineman Angelo Blackson deflected the ball, and Mathieu reached behind him to grab it as he went to the turf.

“That’s why we brought him here,” coach Bill O’Brien said. “We think he’s an instinctive player, from what I can see.”

Blackson said he anticipated that Brady would try to step up in the pocket and throw, so the goal was to get a hand in his face. The ball went off Blackson’s hand and fluttered downward before Mathieu grabbed it at the 17.

But the Texans missed a chance to take advantage of the field position Ryan Jensen Jersey , losing seven yards before settling for a field goal that cut the deficit to 7-3. In the third quarter, Brady connected with Rob Gronkowski for a 25-yard reception before the Patriots tight end was hit by Kareem Jackson and lost the ball.

Mathieu scooped it up. The Texans advanced to the New England 17 but turned the ball over on downs.

“He’s a great player,” defensive lineman J.J. Watt said. “We knew we were getting a great player and a guy that can change games and he did a great job today. With the pick, the fumble recovery, that’s another guy that can make game-changing plays and the more we can of that, and the more we can all start to do our part in that, the better we’re going to be.”

A year after losing to the Patriots 36-33, O’Brien returned to New England with a healthy team that had hopes of beating his former mentor.

Watt returned after playing only five games last season because of a broken leg, and Whitney Mercilus also returned from a torn pectoral muscle that put him on injured reserve in 2017.

With Jadeveon Clowney recovering from knee surgery following the best season of his career and Mathieu joining the secondary, the Texans’ defense was a strong point.

And with Deshaun Watson (176 yards passing, 40 running) also returning from an injury after a stellar start to his rookie year Russell Okung Jersey , the offense figured to be dangerous, too.

But Brady and Gronkowski carved up the Texans at the worst times, including a two-minute drill at the end of the first half after taking over at their own 22 with just 88 seconds on the clock. Brady completed 5 of 6 passes on the drive, hitting Phillip Dorsett on a 4-yard touchdown pass that extended the New England lead to 21-6.

“To give up that touchdown, it is very frustrating,” Clowney said. “I am very upset right now. I hate losing and I hate playing bad and all of that. I know I’ve got a lot of season left and a lot of improvement to do.”

NEW YORK — An emotional Tuesday may have brought the end to an era for the New York Mets. But the Mets know there’s no better way to pay tribute to Sandy Alderson than by proving Wednesday night that Tuesday night’s win was no fluke.

The Mets will look to earn a series victory Wednesday night, when they host the Pittsburgh Pirates in the rubber match of a three-game set at Citi Field.

Zack Wheeler (2-6, 4.85 ERA) is scheduled to take the mound for New York against Pittsburgh’s Ivan Nova (4-5, 3.98 ERA) in a battle of right-handers.

The Mets concluded a whirlwind day by edging the Pirates 4-3 in 10 innings. Wilmer Flores, who had a two-run single in the first inning, delivered his third walk-off hit of the season and the ninth walk-off hit of his career when his single down the third-base line scored Michael Conforto from first base with one out.

The Mets (32-45) snapped a seven-game losing streak hours after learning Alderson Reggie Nelson Jersey , who has been the team’s general manager since October 2010, would be taking an indefinite leave of absence to battle a recurrence of cancer. He was originally diagnosed in 2015 and underwent treatment following that season.

Three of Alderson’s assistants — John Ricco, J.P. Ricciardi and Omar Minaya — will share the general manager’s role while Alderson is out.

Alderson said during a pregame press conference that the cancer returned in April. He informed players of his diagnosis during a pregame meeting that left many players in tears but also may have crystallized their focus.

“We have a job to do and lately we haven’t been doing it up to our potential,” Conforto said. “So we really wanted to focus in and just make sure that we bounce back today, of all days, and play a little bit better. I think we showed a little fight there. We battled back and scratched together enough runs to win a ballgame tonight. So hopefully that gets us on the right path.”

The Pirates (37-42) were hoping a wire-to-wire 6-4 victory in Monday’s opener would get them back on the right track, but Tuesday’s loss was the sixth in the last seven games.

On Wednesday, the Pirates will be seeking only their second series win in their last 13 series dating back to May 17, a span in which they are 12-25.

“I think I shared with our club — I don’t believe I’ve ever been through a rough patch of 34 games since I’ve been in the major leagues as a player, coach or manager,” said Pirates manager Clint Hurdle Laurent Duvernay-Tardif Jersey , who reached the bigs as a player in 1977. “And I’ve had enough. There’s a point in time you stop talking about being a good team, now you go play like a good team. Because your record’s telling you you’re not a good team.”

Wheeler will be looking to earn his first win in almost two months. He took the loss Friday after allowing four runs over seven innings as the Mets fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-2. Wheeler is 0-5 with a 5.13 ERA in 10 starts since his most recent victory April 29.

Nova didn’t factor into the decision Friday, when he allowed three hits over eight scoreless innings in the Pirates’ 2-1, 13-inning loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. It was the second time this season Nova has tossed eight scoreless innings. He also didn’t earn a decision in Pittsburgh’s 1-0 win over the Detroit Tigers on April 26.

Wheeler didn’t factor into the decision in his lone previous start against the Pirates on May 27, 2017, when he gave up three runs over six innings as the Mets fell 5-4 in 10 innings.

Nova is 1-0 with a 2.82 ERA in four career appearances (three starts) against the Mets.
