Andre Johnson’s 5 greatest receiving games with Texans
No. 3: 207 yards on 11 receptions
Dec. 14, 2008 vs. Tennessee Titans
Again, this was a historic performance by Andre Johnson, as it was the first time in his career he caught for over 200 yards in a game, and it was a one-point win by the Texans over the Titans by a 13-12 score.
Johnson in this game finished with 11 receptions for 207 yards with one touchdown and a top reception of 65 yards. His touchdown reception for the Texans – the only Houston TD of the game – came on a 13-yard catch off a Matt Schaub pass in the second quarter.
Of his 11 receptions, eight were caught in the first half, and all but one of those eight receptions were at least 10 yards. In the first half, the Texans receiver Johnson had receptions of 15, 22, 14, 65, 13, 10, 11, and four yards. His second-half receptions went for seven, six, and 40 yards.
Johnson was a machine in this game, and since it was the first time he’d ever caught for 200 or more yards in an NFL game, it is a milestone memory for the wide receiver and Texans fans. This game is one of the many reasons why Johnson is a Pro Football Hall of Fame semifinalist in his first year of eligibility.
