Texans WR Andre Johnson dropped $19,000 on a Toys “R” Us shopping spree for a dozen kids

Houston Texans receiver Andre Johnson is one of the NFL’s preeminent good guys, and he does a lot of fine work through his charity, the Andre Johnson Charitable Foundation.  One of the cooler things he does this time of year is his annual Toys “R” Us shopping spree, where he takes a bunch of at-risk kids selected from Houston’s Child Protective Services and lets them run...

Andre Johnson thinks Monday night game against the Patriots is biggest in Texans history

They call them measurement games and the Houston Texans going into Foxboro Monday night fits that bill. For the 11-1 Texan, one would think it’s the 9-3 Patriots who would be breaking out the measuring tape. However, this is old hat to the Patriots; if they win then they were expected to, if they lose, the Texans would be on their way to the Super Bowl.  The Texans can send...

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson buys toys for Texas foster children

Andre Johnson > Santa Claus

Earlier this season, there were fantasy football reports across the major sites that included a rather depressing update about Houston Texans receiver Andre Johnson. I don’t remember which NFL reporter was involved, but these reports basically read something like, “Andre Johnson’s knees are done and he’s a shell of his former self” and yadda yadda. And it doesn’t matter...

Houston Texans safety Danieal Manning must think Tom Brady is someone else

The Boston Herald was reviewing their transcripts from an interview with Houston Texans safety Danieal Manning when they found this quote from him about beating Tom Brady:“I’m 2-1 with Brady,” Manning said. “Beaten him twice and lost once to him in Chicago. It was a real cold, snowy day and they came with it, they balled out on us.” Manning played for the Chicago Bears...

New England-bound Texans confident on road

The AFC East-champion New England Patriots are 8-1 against AFC teams this year, and 4-1 at home. But according to Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak, that doesn't faze his team in the least.Kubiak's division-leading squad has secured itself a playoff spot as well, and at 11-1 and unbeaten on the road, they don't seem to care where they play. “It’s a confidence thing...

First-place Texans, Patriots battle

With a two-game lead on the rest of the AFC, the Houston Texans could go a long way toward proving they're the team to beat this week. The New England Patriots, though, certainly aren't ready to concede the conference they've represented in the Super Bowl five times in the last 11 years. These powers each bring a six-game winning streak into Monday night's showdown...
