Courtesy of the Texans’ media relations staff, notes from the third quarter at Reliant Stadium, where the Texans lead the Cincinnati Bengals 16-10 in the Wild Card round of the playoffs:
· Led after three quarters for the second time in team postseason history and for the 11th time overall this season.
TE OWEN DANIELS

· Has the second-most receiving yards in a playoff game in team history with 91 through three quarters. He trails WR Andre Johnson’s 111 yards in the 2012 AFC Divisional Playoff at Baltimore (1/15/12).
RB ARIAN FOSTER
· Became the first player in NFL history to rush for more than 100 yards in each of his first three career playoff games. Foster has 113 yards on 26 carries through three quarters.
· Scored his fourth career touchdown in postseason play when he dove into the end zone from a yard away in the third quarter. Foster has scored at least one touchdown in all three of his career postseason games.
CB JOHNATHAN JOSEPH
· Intercepted his second career pass in postseason play when he picked off Cincinnati QB Andy Dalton in the third quarter. Joseph also had an interception against Cincinnati in the 2012 AFC Wild Card Playoff (1/7/12).
