The Texans (9-3) continue to turn doubters into believers after their 17-10 win against Atlanta (7-5) on Sunday, Dec. 4 at Reliant Stadium.
T.J. Yates, who had 188-yards without an interception, helped Houston extend its longest single season winning streak in team history to six straight.
"I was extremely comfortable going out there," Yates, who recorded his first career touchdown by connecting with Joel Dreessen, said. "Coach [Gary] Kubiak, throughout the week, we had a lot of talks and he instilled a lot of confidence in me."
Arian Foster racked up 111 yards, including the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter to keep the Texans on top.
"The chemistry and the camaraderie that we're displaying, it's just fun to be a part of," Foster said. "There's really nothing else to say about it."
A very scary moment for the Texans defense before the half when Brian Cushing suffered a right knee injury while attempting to stop Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez. Cushing would receive help off the field but would return in the second half.
Andre Johnson, who missed six games with a right hamstring injury, hurt his left hamstring in the third quarter.
"We have to wait until tomorrow [for more specific details regarding Johnson]," Kubiak said. "It's actually the other hamstring, you know, it's not the one that's been giving him problems. Right now it's described to me as not being severe."“I pulled up with something in my left hamstring. I got an MRI scheduled for the morning and we’ll find out exactly what it is," Johnson said. "I know it’s not as bad as the last injury I had, but I’m definitely worried about it. It just didn’t feel right. I felt that I tried to pull and I was in full stride and I was trying to hop on one leg and I went down.”
