It was the last home game for the Houston Texans this year.
What initially seemed to be a promising game for the Texans yesterday afternoon at the festive Reliant Stadium hosting a “Fans Appreciation Day” ended up to be an astronomical record setting game for the opposing team’s superstar quarterback Peyton Manning.
The Denver Broncos made three amazing touchdowns in the final quarter in addition to what Manning had already thrown in the first half which escalated Manning ahead of Tom Brady in achieving the NFL’s single-season record for touchdown passes.
Matt Schaub who had just returned to assume his starting role as the Texans QB made a single touchdown in the third quarter but was plagued by interceptions in the final quarter.
The Texans lost with a final score of 13 against the Broncos’ 37 setting their un-stellar record at 2-13, which brought the team spiraling down to the 4th place in the AFC Southern Division.
Andre makes history
Andre Johnson, on the other hand, made his 100th catch for the season, his career-long fifth. He now stands side by side with NFL record-holder Wes Welker for achieving 100 catches in 5 seasons. Johnson and Welker are the only two players to achieve that feat in NFL history.
Last game away from home
The Texans will face the Tennessee Titans on December 29 away from their home court in their final game of the season.
Hopefully, the struggling Houston Texans can rise up from the ashes and give their fans and themselves a long awaited present before the year ends – a solid win.
