Johnson, Foster now share TD record

Andre Johnson became the franchise leader in touchdowns scored in 2008.

He was the TD king until Arian Foster tied him at 62 when the running back scored earlier this season against the Eagles.

Foster took the all-time lead on Sunday when he caught a seven-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter.

But Johnson caught a score of his own with a four-yarder in the fourth quarter.

Now both are sitting on 63 career touchdowns.

Johnson's caught passes with the Texans since 2003, while Foster joined the team as an undrafted free agent in 2009. They've gone about scoring in different ways, but now sit together atop the franchise's record books in touchdown department. Scoring on Sunday for Johnson was no big deal.

"I've never really been known for touchdowns anyway," Johnson said. "When it happens, it happens. Throughout my career, I have never been a big touchdown guy so it doesn't really matter. I'm just happy that it happened."

Johnson finished with seven catches for 53 yards, and has now caught a pass in 130 straight games.

Foster, meanwhile, rolled up 105 yards from scrimmage, with 79 of those coming on the ground. His score Sunday was the 11th of 2014, and the 11th receiving touchdown of his career. He was happy the Texans came out with a 45-21 victory.

"A win is a win," Foster said. "It doesn't matter how many points you score but it felt good to get on a roll like that. Hopefully we can keep going."

Tight end Owen Daniels is third on the team's all-time touchdowns list with 29. He was with the Texans from 2006 to 2013.
