Houston looking for second five-game winning streak in team history. ... QB Matt Schaub has led Texans to victory in each of his last eight starts dating to last season. ... WR Andre Johnson 76 yards receiving shy of 10,000 for his career, and would become sixth-fastest player in NFL history to accomplish feat, doing it in 127th game. ...

Including playoffs, Foster has scored in eight straight. ... Texans' top-ranked defense had three takeaways and returned two interceptions for TDs against Titans. ... DE J.J. Watt, AFC defensive player of month, recovered fumble and had two sacks. Watt has more than one sack in every game this season to set franchise record, giving him NFL-leading 7 1/2. ...

QB Mark Sanchez's 69.6 quarterback rating ranks 30th in NFL, ahead of just rookies Ryan Tannehill of Miami and Brandon Weeden of Cleveland. ... WR Jeremy Kerley ranks fourth in NFL and fifth in AFC with 17-yard average on punt returns. ... Backup QB Tim Tebow completed his first pass with Jets last week, a 9-yard toss to TE Dedrick Epps, who injured knee on play. Tebow, whom many fans and media think should be given bigger role on offense, has 38 yards rushing on nine carries.
