Checking in on Texans' Schaub, Johnson

A couple notes of interest from our friends at ESPN Stats & Information on the Texans after their 16-13 win over the Rams.

  • Matt Schaub threw for 367 yards and a touchdown for his fifth game of at least 350 passing yards this season, which leads the NFL.

  • Andre Johnson had nine catches for 196 yards. He became just the second player this decade to have at least 195 receiving yards without a receiving touchdown. Sidney Rice did it for Minnesota earlier this season.

And this from Elias:

  • Johnson came up short of the second 200-yard receiving game of his career. But by gaining 193 yards against the Seahawks last week and 196 Sunday win, Johnson became only the second receiver in NFL history to reach the 190-yard yard mark in consecutive games. The first was Chad Ochocinco in November 2006.

And two more from the Texans:

  • With 488 receiving yards this month, Johnson has 121 more than the next most productive receiver in that span, Denver's Brandon Marshall. That 488 is more than six teams have over the same period.

  • Johnson needs 200 yards in the Texans' final two games to get to 1,633 for the season, a total that would break him into the top 10 all-time receiving seasons.
