Andre Johnson named AFC Offensive Player of the Month

Posted Nov 29, 2012

Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month after averaging 153.5 receiving yards per game in November.



Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month for November.

Johnson led the AFC in receptions (35), receiving yards (614) and yards from scrimmage (614) in four November games. He averaged 153.5 receiving yards per game, second in the NFL behind Calvin Johnson (154.8) and first in the AFC by a 57-yard margin over A.J. Green (96.5). Johnson set an NFL record for a two-game stretch with 461 receiving yards in the last two games.

Johnson, 31, set franchise records in Week 11 with 14 catches for 273 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He scored the game-winning touchdown on a 48-yard catch-and-run in overtime. He followed that with a nine-catch, 188-yard performance in the Texans’ overtime victory at the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day. Johnson had eight catches for 118 yards in a Week 9 victory against the Buffalo Bills.

Johnson’s big month vaulted him from ranking 18th in the NFL in receptions (34) and yards (444) to sixth (69) and third (1,058), respectively. He is on pace for his third-career 1,500-yard season, which would tie Marvin Harrison for the second-most in NFL history behind Jerry Rice (4).

This is the second AFC Offensive Player of the Month in Johnson’s 10-year career. The five-time Pro Bowler previously won the award in October 2008. This is the second time this season and eighth time in franchise history a Texan has won Player of the Month honors.
