HOUSTON (AP) - In a story Nov. 18, relying on information provided by the Houston Texans, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Houston's Andre Johnson and Jacksonville's Justin Blackmon were the first pair of NFL receivers to have more than 200 yards receiving in the same game. Philadelphia's Kevin Curtis (221) and Detroit's Roy Williams (204) accomplished the feat Sept. 23, 2007.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Johnson and Blackmon 2nd duo to make NFL history
Johnson and Blackmon become 2nd WR duo with 200 yards receiving each in NFL game
HOUSTON (AP) - Houston's Andre Johnson and Jacksonville's Justin Blackmon both had more than 200 yards receiving Sunday, marking the second time two players reached that mark in a single game.
Johnson had 14 receptions for 273 yards, both career highs. Blackmon, a rookie, had seven receptions for 236 yards, also career highs.
Blackmon had an 81-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter. Johnson gave the Texans a 43-37 win in overtime with a 48-yard touchdown catch.
Philadelphia's Kevin Curtis (221 yards) and Detroit's Roy Williams (204) first accomplished the feat Sept. 23, 2007
