First-quarter notes: Patriots 7, Texans 3

Posted by Nick Scurfield on January 13, 2013 – 4:21 pm

FOXBORO — Courtesy of the Texans’ public relations staff, notes from the first quarter at Gillette Stadium, where the Texans trail 7-3 in the Divisional Round of the playoffs:

THE TEXANS

·         Scored first for the second consecutive game when K Shayne Graham booted a 27-yard field goal to cap the opening drive of the game.

 

·         Trailed at the end of the first quarter for the first time this postseason and the seventh time overall this season. Houston was 2-4 when trailing after the opening period during the regular season.

 

TE OWEN DANIELS

·         Extended his streak of consecutive games with a reception to 87, including regular season and postseason games, with a 10-yard catch in the first quarter.

 

CB BRANDON HARRIS

·         Made his first career postseason start when the Texans defense opened the game with six defensive backs on the field.

 

FS SHILOH KEO

·         Made his first career postseason start when the Texans defense opened the game with six defensive backs on the field.

 

WR ANDRE JOHNSON

·         Extended his franchise-record streak of consecutive games with a reception to 106, including regular season and postseason games, with an 11-yard catch in the first quarter.

 

SS DANIEAL MANNING

·         Returned the opening kickoff 94 yards to the New England 12-yard line to set up a 27-yard field goal by K Shayne Graham. It was the longest kickoff return of his career in both regular season and postseason play and was the longest in Texans postseason history. His previous longs were 83 yards vs. New Orleans on 12/11/08 as a Chicago Bear and 60 yards in the 2011 AFC Divisional Playoff at Baltimore on 1/15/12. That return was also on the opening kick of the game.

 

OLB BROOKS REED

·         Teamed with DE J.J. Watt to sack New England QB Tom Brady for a 9-yard loss in the first quarter, extending his streak of consecutive playoff games with a sack to four. Reed and Watt are tied for the most sacks in team playoff history with 5.0 apiece.

 

DE J.J. WATT

·         Teamed with OLB Brooks Reed to sack New England QB Tom Brady for a 9-yard loss in the first quarter, extending his streak of consecutive playoff games with a sack to four. Watt and Reed are tied for the most sacks in team playoff history with 5.0 apiece.

 

MISCELLANEOUS NOTES

·         FB Tyler Clutts and WR Lestar Jean made their playoff debuts in the game

 

·         Inactive players for the Texans were G Antoine Caldwell, CB Roc Carmichael, ILB Cameron Collins, T Andrew Gardner, NT Terrell McClain, CB Stanford Routt and G Cody White.

 

·         Captains for the Texans were WR Andre Johnson, FS Shiloh Keo, C Chris Myers, QB Matt Schaub, DE Antonio Smith and DE J.J. Watt. Schaub, Johnson and Smith went to midfield for the pregame coin toss.

 

·         The Texans won the toss and elected to receive the opening kickoff.
