HOUSTON (AP) -- Houston's Andre Johnson heard the whispers he'd lost a step and that he'd never again be an elite receiver as he struggled through the worst season of his career in 2011. He didn't let it get him down. Johnson used it as motivation, and bounced back this year with a career-high 1,598 yards receiving. Now he's looking to do more as the Texans prepare for Saturday's playoff game against the Bengals. Johnson has had success against Cincinnati in the past, and is averaging 122.7 yards receiving in his past three games against the Bengals. . Coach Gary Kubiak has been impressed by Johnson's season, and says, "I've been fortunate to be around some special players, but I really count my blessings with this one."
