Courtesy of the Texans’ public relations staff, notes from the second quarter at Reliant Stadium, where the Texans lead the Bills 7-6 in Week 9:
· Had a field goal blocked for the first time since 12/13/09 vs. Seattle when Buffalo DT Alex Carrington blocked K Shayne Graham’s 46-yard attempt in the second quarter.
· Led at halftime for the seventh time this season.
OLB CONNOR BARWIN
· Registered his second sack of the season and his second in as many games when he tackled Buffalo QB Ryan Fitzpatrick for a 1-yard loss in the second quarter. It marked the sixth time in his career that Barwin recorded sacks in back-to-back games.
FB JAMES CASEY
· Caught his 19th pass of the season on a gain of 24 yards in the second quarter, establishing a new career single-season high. He caught 18 passes a year ago.
K SHAYNE GRAHAM
· Saw his streak of 13 consecutive made field goals come to an end when his 46-yard attempt in the second quarter was blocked.
DE J.J. WATT
· Sacked Buffalo QB Ryan Fitzpatrick for a 6-yard loss in the second quarter, raising his season total to 10.5. Watt became the third Texans to record 10 or more sacks in a season and the 11th player since 1982 to record 10 or more sacks and 10 or more passes defensed in a season.
