THE TEXANS

·         Opened the scoring for the fifth game this season when K Shayne Graham connected on a 20-yard field goal in the first quarter.

·         Led at the end of the first quarter for the sixth time this season.

·         Forced three turnovers in the first quarter, which is the most in team history in the opening period. The Texans have previously forced two turnovers in the first quarter seven times, most recently on 9/11/11 vs. Indianapolis.

ILB TIM DOBBINS

·         Tied his career high with his second interception of the season when he picked off Chicago QB Jay Cutler in the first quarter. It was his 11th career interception. Manning also had two interceptions in 2006, 2007 and 2011.

FS GLOVER QUIN
