Posted by Nick Scurfield on November 24, 2010 – 11:24 am

Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson is on the brink of reaching several career milestones as the Texans prepare to face the Tennessee Titans in Week 12 at Reliant Stadium:

  • With four catches, he’ll become the first receiver in NFL history to have at least 60 receptions in each of his first eight seasons. Johnson has 56 in nine games this season.
  • With a 10-catch, 100-yard game, he’ll tie Jerry Rice for the most such games in a career since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. Rice had at least 10 catches and 100 yards in 15 of 303 career games (4.95%). Johnson has 14 in 110 games (12.73%). Marvin Harrison had 14 in 190 career games (7.37%).
  • With eight catches, he’ll move into 41st place on the all-time receptions list. Johnson currently ranks 43rd with 643, trailing Charley Taylor (649) and Bobby Engram (650). Ozzie Newsome is 40th with 662 catches.
  • With 118 yards, he’ll move into 50th place on the all-time receiving yards list. Johnson currently ranks 55th with 8,761 yards, trailing Mark Carrier (8,763), Terance Mathis (8,809), Terry Glenn (8,823), Mark Duper (8,869) and Proehl (8,878).

In his last three games against the Titans, Johnson has averaged 8.3 catches and 144.7 receiving yards per game.
