Despite Ejection, Andre Johnson Makes History On Sunday

The big news from the Houston Texans' 20-0 shutout over the Tennessee Titans was the ejection of Andre Johnson for punching Titans' cornerback Cortland Finnegan. Johnson accomplished more than merely getting a few good swings at one of the NFL's dirtiest players though. With his nine receptions against the Titans, Johnson increased his 2010 season total to 65 receptions, making him the first player in NFL history to record at least 60 receptions in each of his first eight seasons.

Let's take a look...
