Josh Wilson intercepted Matt Schaub's pass and returned it 12 yards for a touchdown in overtime, lifting the Baltimore Ravens to a 34-28 win over the host Houston Texans on Monday night.
The Ravens (9-4) stayed one game behind Pittsburgh in the AFC North despite blowing a 28-7 lead in the second half. Schaub threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Andre Johnson and a two-point conversion to Jacoby Jones with 21 seconds left in regulation to cap the unlikely rally.
Baltimore lost fourth-quarter leads in each of its four losses and had to punt after its only offensive series of overtime. Houston started from its 12, and Schaub was trying to connect with Jones on second down when Wilson picked it off and ran into the end zone.
Houston (5-8) has lost six of its last seven.
Jets coach suspended. The New York assistant who tripped a Miami Dolphins player during a game Sunday has been suspended without pay for the rest of the season, including the playoffs, and fined an additional $25,000.
Sal Alosi, the Jets' strength and conditioning coach, will begin serving his suspension immediately and have no access to the team's practice facility. General manager Mike Tannenbaum says Monday that Alosi will also not be allowed to interact with any players or coaches "as it pertains to his job function."
Tannenbaum says the team spoke with the NFL about the incident throughout the day, and the league will issue no further discipline. Alosi said earlier in the day that his "actions were inexcusable and irresponsible."
Linebacker tackled. Tampa Bay's Geno Hayes had a stun gun used on him, then was tackled by a cop, and arrested for disorderly conduct early Monday morning.
The Buccaneers linebacker allegedly was asked to leave a night club, then became belligerent, and ended up in jail until 5 a.m. in the morning. The Bucs had beaten the Redskins in Washington on Sunday afternoon.
Bucs' coach Raheem Morris said Hayes, a third-year pro who played at Florida State, would play in Sunday's home game against Detroit. Morris said Hayes would be disciplined in house.

Concussion study. If it seems as if more and more NFL players are missing time because of concussions, it's because they are: According to league data obtained by The Associated Press, the number of concussions being reported this season is up more than 20 percent from 2009, and more than 30 percent from 2008.
The NFL considers that proof that players and teams are taking head injuries more seriously and being more open about them.
The NFL's data shows 154 concussions - from practices or games - were reported from the start of the preseason through the eighth week of the 2010 regular season. That's an increase of 21 percent over the 127 concussions through the eighth week of the 2009 season, and a 34 percent jump from the 115 reported over the same span in 2008.
