Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson Named AFC Offensive Player of the Month
Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month for November on Thursday.
Johnson lead the AFC with 35 receptions, 614 receiving yards and in yards from scrimmage with 614 during the month.
He averaged 153.5 receiving yards per game, second in the NFL behind Calvin Johnson (154.8) and first in the AFC by a 57-yard margin over A.J. Green (96.5). Johnson also set an NFL record for a two-game stretch with 461 receiving yards in the last two games.
The 31-year-old continues to amaze and build on his All-Pro career as the veteran set franchise records in Week 11 with 14 catches for 273 yards against the division rival Jacksonville Jaguars. He followed that with a nine-catch, 188-yard performance in the Texans’ overtime victory at the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day.
Johnson is on pace for his third-career 1,500 yard season, which would time him with Marvin Harrison for the second-most in NFL history behind Jerry Rice who has four.
