First-quarter notes: Texans 7, Jaguars 7

Posted by Nick Scurfield on November 18, 2012 – 12:58 pm

Courtesy of the Texans’ public relations department, notes from the first quarter of Week 11 at Reliant Stadium, where the Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars are tied 7-7:

THE TEXANS

·         Scored on their opening drive for the fourth time this season and scored a touchdown on the opening drive for the third time this season. The last time Houston scored on its opening possession was in Week 5 at the New York Jets (10/8).

·         Scored first for the sixth time this season and for the second consecutive game when QB Matt Schaub hit WR Keshawn Martin for a 9-yard score on the first possession of the game.

·         Started the game by forcing a fumble for the second consecutive game. It was Houston’s 19th takeaway on the season.

·         Allowed a touchdown for the first time in nearly two and a half games when Jacksonville QB Chad Henne hit TE Marcedes Lewis for a 13-yard score with 2:56 left in the first quarter. That broke a streak of 157:40 of game time without allowing a touchdown. The last touchdown the Texans gave up came with 10:36 remaining in the third quarter of Houston’s Week 7 game vs. Baltimore (10/21).

·         Were tied at the end of the first quarter for the second time this season. Houston was also tied after the opening period in Week 5 at the New York Jets (10/8).

TE OWEN DANIELS

·         Extended his streak of consecutive games with a reception to 77 with a 10-yard catch in the first quarter.

ILB TIM DOBBINS

·         Recovered a fumble for the second consecutive game when he scooped up a loose ball after SS Danieal Manning jarred the ball out of Jacksonville QB Blaine Gabbert’s hand. It was Dobbins’ second recovery of the season and the fifth of his career.

RB JUSTIN FORSETT

·         Posted his longest run since the 2010 season when he ripped off a 30-yard gain in the first quarter. He had a 31-yard run vs. Carolina on 12/5/10.

WR LESTAR JEAN

·         Made his first career start when the Texans opened the game with four wide receivers.

WR ANDRE JOHNSON

·         Extended his franchise-record streak of consecutive games with a reception to 92 with an 7-yard catch on the first play of the game.

·         Passed Hall of Fame WR Lance Alworth for 33rd on the NFL’s all-time receiving yardage list when he hauled in a 22-yard pass on the second play of the game. Johnson entered the game needing 14 yards to pass Alworth’s career total of 10,266.

SS DANIEAL MANNING

·         Forced a fumble for the second consecutive week when he sacked Jacksonville QB Blaine Gabbert and knocked the ball loose on Jacksonville’s opening drive. It was Manning’s eighth career forced fumble.

·         Finished the opening drive 4-of-4 for 83 yards and a touchdown.

ILB DARRYL SHARPTON
