Andre Johnson snags 62nd TD to end 12-game drought

Andre Johnson’s 4-yard touchdown catch early in the second quarter ended the longest scoring drought of his career at 12 games. He had last made a reception in the end zone against the Cardinals in Arizona on November 10, 2013. He hadn’t scored at home since catching three of Case Keenum’s passes for touchdowns against the Colts a week earlier.

Johnson’s 62 career touchdown passes rank him 68th all time, which is out of sync with his standing in receptions. Johnson is 11th overall with 957. But the nine retired players ahead of him all scored at least 85 touchdowns and the Colts’ Reggie Wayne has 81 despite playing just one more season than Johnson has.
