The Texans lost a heart-breaker to the Colts on Sunday night. 

They held an 18-point lead at halftime but were heavily outscored in the second half and lost 27-24. 

The 18-point halftime lead is the second largest the Texans have had in a loss. They blew a 21-point lead in a 33-27 loss to the Rams in 2005. 

But it wasn't all bad. 

Andre Johnson's 200-yard, three-touchdown game on Sunday is the 27th such game in NFL history. First since Kenny Britt in 2010. 

Last few to do it aren't big names: Britt, Kevin Curtis, Drew Bennett, Javon Walker, Amani Toomer, Albert Connell. 

Some guy named Jerry Rice is the only receiver to have two 200-yard, three-touchdown games. 

Johnson tied Torry Holt as the second-fastest player in NFL history reach 12,000 receiving yards. He did it in his 146th career game. Rice did it the fastest in his 142nd career game.

Case Keenum's 62-yarder to Johnson is the longest pass from a Texan since Schaub to Jacoby Jones on Nov. 13, 2011. 

Randy Bullock went 1-for-4 on Sunday night. Bullock is the first player since 1985 to have a field goal percentage under 62 percent with at least 20 attempts through eight games.

The attendance at Reliant Stadium last night was 71,778. It was the largest in franchise history.

The Texans had the roof open at Reliant Stadium for the first time since 2011. They are now 23-19 all-time with the roof open.
