Andre Johnson gave another record-breaking performance despite the Texans' 11-game losing streak. In Thursday's 27-20 loss to Jacksonville, Johnson caught 13 passes for 154 yards. It was the 20th game in Johnson's career with a game of at least 10 catches and 100 yards receiving, for the most in NFL history.
Johnson also tied Jerry Rice, whom he considers "the greatest receiver to ever play," with the most games of at least 10 receptions and 150 yards. Johnson and Rice both did so ten times in their careers.
Johnson's 100-yard performance against Jacksonville was his sixth this season and the 50th of his career, which ties him with Don Maynard for the fifth-most in league history.
Johnson caught just 2-of-4 passes for 14 yards in the first half. When asked what he did differently in the second half to catch the bulk of his passes, Johnson's response was simple.
"I didn't do anything differently," Johnson said. "I just had more opportunities and tried to make plays when they came my way."
Johnson ranks as the Texans' all-time leading receiver with 900 receptions for 12,377 yards and 61 touchdowns in 11 eleven seasons. Last week he became the second-fastest player in NFL history to reach 900 receptions, doing so in 150 games.
