FOXBORO — Courtesy of the Texans’ public relations staff, notes from Week 14 at Gillette Stadium, where the Texans lost 42-14 to the New England Patriots:

THE TEXANS

·         Failed to score first for the sixth time this season. Houston fell to 4-2 when allowing its opponents to score first thus far this season.

·         Trailed after one quarter for the fourth time this season and trailed at halftime and after three quarters for the third time this season. Houston fell to 2-2, 1-2 and 1-2 in each instance, respectively.

·         Lost the time of possession battle for the second time this season, holding the ball for 29:11. It was the first time this season that Houston’s time of possession was less than 30:00, since the only other instance in which the Texans lost time of possession was an overtime game at Detroit in Week 12 (11/22).

·         Finished with an even turnover margin for the second time this season. Houston gave the ball away once and had one takeaway in the game. The Texans fell to 1-1 in such instances.

FB JAMES CASEY

·         Caught his longest pass of the season when he took a screen pass 23 yards in the second quarter. Foster’s previous long was an 18-yard catch in Week 2 at Jacksonville (9/16).

·         Established a season high with 39 receiving yards in the game, bettering his previous high of 37 yards from Week 2 at Jacksonville (9/16).

WR LESTAR JEAN

·         Caught his second pass of the game, a gain of 7 yards in the second quarter. It marked Jean’s first career game with multiple receptions.

WR ANDRE JOHNSON

·         Extended his franchise-record streak of consecutive games with a reception to 95 with an 8-yard catch in the first quarter.

P DONNIE JONES

·         Registered his first career interception when he picked off a deflected pass from Patriots QB Ryan Mallett in the fourth quarter.

WR DEVIER POSEY

CB STANFORD ROUTT

·         Made his debut as a Texan, seeing action on special teams and as a reserve on defense.

QB MATT SCHAUB

·         Surpassed 20,000 career passing yards as a member of the Houston Texans. He entered the game with 19,965 yards as a Texan and topped the milestone on a 13-yard completion to TE Owen Daniels, his fourth pass attempt of the game.

DE J.J. WATT

·         Forced a fumble in the fourth quarter. It was his second forced fumble of the season and the second of his career.
