Some notes from the Texans from their overtime win in Washington and the resulting 2-0 start:
- The win extended the Texans winning streak to six consecutive games dating back to the 2009 season. That is the longest active win streak in the NFL and is a franchise record.
- The win was Houston’s first overtime victory in franchise history. Houston’s record in overtime now stands at 1-6.
- The Texans overcame a 17-point deficit at 27-10 to win the game. It was the second-largest come-from-behind win in team history. Houston came from 18 points behind to beat Tennessee on Nov. 28, 2004 (31-21 final).
- The Houston defense held Washington to a franchise-record-low 18 rushing yards. That bested the previous record of 27 yards allowed at the New York Jets on Nov. 26, 2006.
- Andre Johnson finished the game with 12 catches for 158 yards and a touchdown. It was his 32nd career 100-yard game and his 14th career game with 10 or more catches and 100 or more yards. His 14 career 10-catch, 100-yard games are the second-most in NFL history. He is now one shy of Hall of Famer Jerry Rice’s total.
- Johnson became the 76th player in NFL history to reach 8,000 career receiving yards and the 50th player in NFL history to reach 600 receptions.
- Matt Schaub’s 497 passing yards were a franchise record, breaking his own mark of 414 yards at Green Bay on Dec. 7, 2008. He also set career highs for attempts (52) and completions (38). The passing yards were the 12th-most in NFL history
- Mario Williams’ 3.0 sacks matched the second-highest single-game total of his career.
