Ravens 20, Texans 13: Postgame notes

Posted by Nick Scurfield on January 15, 2012 – 10:57 pm

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Courtesy of the Texans’ communications staff, postgame notes from the Texans’ 20-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in the Divisional Round of the playoffs on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium:

THE TEXANS…

  • Outrushed the Ravens 131 to 87. It was the second consecutive postseason game in which Houston outrushed its opponent and the 14th game overall this year.
  • Limited Baltimore to 227 yards of total offense and an average of 3.6 yards per play. Houston gave up only 11 first downs in the game, which is tied for the second-fewest given up in a game this year. Houston held Cleveland to 10 first downs on 11/6.
  • Scored first for the first time in the postseason and the 13th time overall this season. Houston fell to 9-5 in those games this year and 0-1 in the playoffs.
  • Trailed after each of the first three quarters. It was the first time this postseason that Houston trailed in each instance. Overall, Houston has trailed after one quarter four times, with a record of 1-3 in those games, and has trailed at halftime and after three quarters five times each and is 1-4 in both instances.
  • Team captains were WR Andre Johnson and C Chris Myers on offense; ILB Brian Cushing, ILB DeMeco Ryans and DE Antonio Smith on defense; and K Neil Rackers representing the special teams.
  • The Ravens won the toss and deferred the option to the second half. The Texans elected to receive the opening kickoff.

RB ARIAN FOSTER

  • Rushed for 132 yards on the day, giving him a two-game total of 285 this postseason. That is the most by any running back in NFL history in his first two playoff games, surpassing Dallas RB Duane Thomas’ total of 278 yards in 1970.
  • His 132 rushing yards were the sixth-most by a player against Baltimore’s defense in a game, regular season or postseason, since 2000 and the most since 9/26/10 when Cleveland RB Peyton Hillis rushed for 144 yards against the Ravens.
  • Rushed for 95 yards on 15 carries in the first half. His 95 yards are most that Baltimore’s defense has ever surrendered to a single player in a postseason game. The previous high was 91 yards by Eddie George for Tennessee on 1/7/01.
  • Scored on a 1-yard run in the second quarter. Foster has scored a rushing touchdown in four consecutive games and in back-to-back playoff games.
  • Became the 17th player in NFL history to rush for more than 100 yards in back-to-back postseason games. He topped the century mark on his first carry of the second half, his 16th of the game.
  • Has topped 100 rushing yards in four consecutive games dating back to the regular season.

WR ANDRE JOHNSON

  • Surpassed 100 receiving yards for the first time in his postseason career. He topped the century mark on his eighth catch of the day, a gain of 16 yards late in the fourth quarter. Johnson has 38 career 100-yard games in regular-season play.
  • Topped 100 receiving yards for the second consecutive game against Baltimore. He caught nine passes for 140 yards and two touchdowns against the Ravens on 12/13/10.

FS DANIEAL MANNING

  • Returned the opening kickoff 60 yards to the Baltimore 41-yard line. The return was his longest of the season, bettering a 46-yard return in the season opener vs. Indianapolis (9/11).

OLB JESSE NADING

  • Forced a fumble on a kickoff return in the first quarter. It was Nading’s first career forced fumble in either regular season or postseason action.

K NEIL RACKERS

  • Connected on his second field goal of the game when he hit a 33-yard field goal in the second quarter. It marked Rackers’ second career playoff game with multiple field goals. He made four-of-five field goal attempts in a Divisional Playoff at Carolina on 1/10/09 as a member of the Arizona Cardinals.

OLB BROOKS REED

  • Was credited with his second sack and his first forced fumble of the postseason when he stripped the ball out of Baltimore QB Joe Flacco’s hand in the first quarter. It was Reed’s first career forced fumble.
  • Notched his second sack of the game when he dropped Flacco for a 5-yard loss in the third quarter.
  • Teamed with DE J.J. Watt to sack Flacco for a 12-yard loss in the fourth quarter. It gave Watt and Reed each 2.5 sacks on the day, which is a career high for both.

DE J.J. WATT

  • Registered his second sack of the postseason when he tackled Baltimore QB Joe Flacco for an 8-yard loss in the second quarter.
  • Made his second sack of the game when he dropped Flacco for an 8-yard loss in the third quarter, tying his career high. He had 2.0 sacks at Jacksonville (11/27).
  • Teamed with OLB Brooks Reed to sack Flacco for a 12-yard loss in the fourth quarter. It gave Watt and Reed each 2.5 sacks on the day, which is a career high for both.
  • Led the team with a career-high 12 tackles, including nine solo stops, three tackles for loss and three quarterback hits.

    I have not heard any talk on this, so maybe I’m crazy, but I thought Ed Reed’s game clinching interception should have been a SAFETY. He clearly had possession in the field of play then went out of bonds in the endzone. Is the rule that his momentum carried him into the endzone adn therefore not a saeft?
