Postgame notes: Packers 42, Texans 24

Posted by Nick Scurfield on October 15, 2012 – 1:22 am

Courtesy of the Texans’ public relations staff, postgame notes from the Texans’ 42-24 Week 6 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football at Reliant Stadium:

THE LOSS

·         Ended Houston’s five-game winning streak and dropped the Texans to 5-1 on the season.

·         Dropped the Texans’ record against Green Bay to 1-2 all-time.

·         Dropped the Texans’ record in prime time to 4-9 overall, 3-6 under Head Coach Gary Kubiak and 1-1 this season.

THE TEXANS OFFENSE

·         Made a field goal for the 16th consecutive game, setting a franchise record. Houston previously had field goals in 15 consecutive games from 11/1/10 – 10/9/11.

·         Won the time of possession battle for the sixth time this season.

·         Trailed after the first quarter, at halftime and after three quarters for the first time this season in each instance.

THE TEXANS DEFENSE

·         Blocked a punt for the first time since 1/1/06 at San Francisco and scored a touchdown on the play. The touchdown was the first off of a blocked punt since 12/22/02 at Washington.

·         Allowed their opponent to score on its opening drive for the first time this season when Green Bay scored on a 41-yard touchdown pass.

OLB BRYAN BRAMAN

·         Blocked a punt in the fourth quarter. It was the first punt block in his career and the first since 1/1/06 when Ramon Walker blocked a punt at San Francisco. It was the fifth blocked punt in Texans history.

FB JAMES CASEY

·         Caught two passes for 27 yards, raising his season reception total to 18 and matching his total from last season.

TE OWEN DANIELS

·         Surpassed 4,000 career receiving yards on a 27-yard catch in the third quarter, his third of the game. He entered the game needing 40 yards to reach the milestone.

·         Extended his streak of consecutive games with a reception to 74 with a 4-yard catch in the first quarter.

RB ARIAN FOSTER

·         Scored his 40th career touchdown when he reached the end zone from a yard out in the second quarter. Foster has scored 35 career rushing touchdowns and has five receiving scores.

·         Extended his streak of consecutive games with a touchdown to a franchise-record eight games when he scored from a yard out early in the second quarter. RB Domanick Williams previously held the mark with touchdowns in seven straight games from 11/21/04 – 1/2/05.

·         Scored his second touchdown of the game, a 1-yard run in the third quarter. It was his second multi-touchdown game of the season and his first since the season opener vs. Miami (9/9).

TE GARRETT GRAHAM

·         Caught a career-high three passes for 25yards, topping his previous high of two receptions set in Week 3 at Denver (9/23).

K SHAYNE GRAHAM

·         Made the 10th field goal of his career of 50 yards or longer, and his first as a Texan, when he connected from 51 yards in the second quarter. It was Graham’s first field goal of 50+ yards since 2009.

WR ANDRE JOHNSON

·         Surpassed 10,000 career receiving yards on his seventh catch of the game, a gain of 15 yards. Johnson entered the game with 9,939 career yards. Johnson became the sixth-fastest player to reach the 10,000-yard mark, doing so in his 128th game, and the 38th player in NFL history to top the milestone.

·         Surpassed 10,000 career yards from scrimmage with his first catch of the game, a 12-yard gain. He entered the game with 9,993 career scrimmage yards (9,939 receiving, 54 rushing).

·         Extended his franchise-record streak of consecutive games with a reception to 88 with a 12-yard catch in the first quarter.

·         Played in his 128th career game, tying K Kris Brown (2002-09) for the most games played as a Houston Texan.

WR KESHAWN MARTIN

·         Made his debut as a returner and returned three kickoffs for 65 yards (21.7 average) and one punt for 19 yards.

·         Established a new season high for receiving yards with 24 on two catches, both of which came in the third quarter.

WR DeVIER POSEY

·         Recovered a blocked punt in the end zone for a touchdown. It was his first career touchdown and was the first touchdown following a blocked punt for the Texans since 12/22/02 when Jimmy McClain blocked a punt at Washington and Kevin Williams recovered it in the end zone.

FS GLOVER QUIN

·         Tied a season-high with eight tackles, seven of which were solo stops. He also led the team with two passes defensed.

QB MATT SCHAUB

·         Saw his streak of nine consecutive wins come to an end with the loss. Schaub’s last loss as the starting quarterback came on 10/16/11 at Baltimore.

·         Finished the night with a season-low passer rating of 56.6, completing 20-of-33 passes for 232 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions.

WR KEVIN WALTER

·         Caught his 300th pass as a Texan when he hauled in a 12-yard throw in the third quarter. Walter entered the game with 298 receptions with the team.

DE J.J. WATT

·         Extended his streak of consecutive games with a sack to six, matching the longest streak in team history. Mario Williams had sacks in six straight games from 11/18/07 – 12/23/07.

·         Registered his fourth multiple-sack game of the season, with 2.0 sacks for 10 yards in losses. Watt now has 9.5 sacks on the season to lead the NFL.

QB T.J. YATES

·         Made his second appearance of the season and threw his first passes of the year. Yates finished the game 2-of-5 for 23 yards with no touchdowns and 1 interception for a passer rating of 15.0.

    Mr. McNair should sit Kubiak, Wade and the entire Texans team down and make them watch the film of tonight’s MNF game, in which Peyton Manning and all 3 phases of the Broncos, offense, defense and special teams came back from 0-24 to even the score in the 3rd quarter, then BEAT the Chargers 35-24 in San Diego !

    That’s what winners do, rising to the challenge and overcoming adversity, no matter the odds, and not crumbling into a heap of disgrace like the Texans did against the Packers Sunday night on national TV!

    Signed – A very embarrassed Texans fan
