INDIANAPOLIS — Courtesy of the Texans’ public relations staff, notes from the third quarter at Lucas Oil Stadium, where the Texans trail the Indianapolis Colts 21-16:
DE J.J. WATT
· Remained two sacks shy of Michael Strahan’s single-season NFL sack record (22.5) set in 2001. Watt entered the game with 20.5 sacks.
· Trailed after three quarters for the fifth time this season. Houston is 1-3 this season when trailing going into the fourth quarter.
RB ARIAN FOSTER
· Scored the 50th touchdown of his career when he found the end zone on a 13-yard run in the third quarter. The touchdown also pushed his point total to 102 for the season, giving him his second career 100-point season. He scored a career-high 108 points in 2010.
· Reeled off a 39-yard gain in the third quarter, which was his second-longest run of the season. Foster had a 46-yard run in Week 5 at the New York Jets (10/8).
K SHAYNE GRAHAM
· Set the franchise single-season scoring record with his third field goal of the game, which gave him 138 on the year. The previous high was 135 points by K Neil Rackers in 2011.
WR ANDRE JOHNSON
· Set a career high in receiving yardage. With one quarter remaining in the game, he has 1,590 yards, topping his previous high of 1,575 yards in 2008.
· Surpassed 100 receiving yards on his 10th catch of the game, a pickup of 14 yards in the third quarter. It was his NFL-record 18th game with double-digit reception; and his 44th career 100-yard game and his sixth this season.
· Recorded his 17th career game with 10 or more receptions and 100 or more yards, which is the most in NFL history. Johnson entered the day tied with New England WR Wes Welker, who plays later today, with 16 such games.
