I didn't watch the last twenty five-ish minutes of this game. I couldn't. As soon as I switched off my faulty stream with the Texans down by 14 points in the fourth quarter, the Bulls on Parade started coming back. From that point on I couldn't bring myself to get my stream back up. Whatever karmic actions I was doing, it was working, My eyes glued to the NFL.com game center, I saw Garrett Graham suddenly decide to be uncoverable. I watched as Andre Johnson racked up personal records that nobody thought he could ever come close to at his age. I giddily smiled at every defensive stop and nearly pulled out my hair at every missed field goal. This was a whole new way to lose years of your life. It's one thing to watch your team come out of a nail biter on TV, but it's a whole new circle of hell to follow numbers on a screen and have no clue what is happening.
You're welcome, BRB. You're welcome.
Some stats from this game.
Matt Schaub: 527 yards (3rd all time) and 5 TD's. You could make an argument that this could have been one of the greatest performances in NFL history.
Andre Johnson: 14 receptions for 273 yards and a TD. This too is arguably in the top 5 receiving performances ever.
Garrett Graham: 8 receptions for 82 yards and 2 TD's. Joel who?
Keshawn Martin: 25.80 points in my fantasy league. Gotta love return yardage, right?
Arian Foster: 28 carries for 77 yards. Was this his best game ever? Not even close. Was it enough to allow Andre Johnson to have his best game ever? Yep, and that's good enough for me.
Shayne Graham: 60% on field goals on the day. sigh....
Darryl Sharpton: 4 tackles on limited snaps. Welcome back, buddy.
