Andre Johnson is the AFC offensive player of the month

Dogged earlier this season by questions regarding whether his best days were behind him, Andre Johnson has turned in a couple of the best days any NFL receiver has ever had.

For that, he has been named the AFC offensive player of the month for November.

Johnson, now in his 10th year, led the conference with 35 catches, 614 receiving yards, and 614 yards from scrimmage.  Along the way, the Texans went 4-0.

He finished the month by generating 461 receiving yards in a pair of games played only four days apart.

Johnson is the second Texan to be honored with a player-of-the-month award this season.  In September, defensive end J.J. Watt was named his conference’s defensive player of the month.

Johnson previously won the award in October 2008.

    I have serious wonders if Kubiak held back Johnson on purpose. He has been hamstrung by injuries over the last few years (pun intended) and he’s obviously one of the best weapons on the team. It would make sense to leave him on the field early in the to at least keep defenses honest but not really have him go full out until the end of the season.

    He’s at full stride now for the playoff run and playing some of his best ball ever.

    By the way, over 100 of his yards against Detroit came late in the 4th and OT. #clutch

    This guy hasn’t been healthy this late in the season in a while. He’s the Calvin Johnson of the AFC (actually vice versa since Andre’s been around longer) he’s always been a top 5 receiver he just always played on horrible teams so nobody noticed.

    It was never a concern…that’s what was happening.Kubiak said that’s what he was going to do to bring Andre along slowly…due to him being injured all the time.

    He’s on pace for 1500+ yds and would then be behind only Jerry Rice for the most 1500 yd seasons.

    1st ballot….
