STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Texans appearing on Monday Night Football for just fifth time in team history with one win in four previous appearances. ... Texans have never beaten Jets, including 0-3 against them on road. ... Victory would make Texans first pro football team in Houston to start 5-0 since the Gamblers of the USFL in 1985. ... 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. ... RB Arian Foster needs 23 yards rushing to reach 3,500 for his career. Can tie Domanick Williams' team record by scoring TD in seventh consecutive regular-season 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. ... Houston leads NFL in scoring defense (14 points), yards allowed (273) and third-down efficiency (25 percent), and leads AFC in passing defense (182.8 yards). ... Texans have not given up lead this season, and have trailed for combined 18 minutes, 52 seconds. ... Texans will be without S Quintin Demps, who broke left forearm against Tennessee and had surgery Monday. ... A week after Jets lost CB Darrelle Revis for season with torn knee ligament, WR Santonio Holmes injured left foot and was placed on season-ending IR Wednesday - leaving New York without top offensive and defensive players. New York signed former Lions CB Aaron Berry to help replace Revis and former Jaguars/49ers WR Jason Hill to help make up for loss of Holmes. ... Jets inducting former DE Mark Gastineau and WR Wesley Walker into team's Ring of Honor at halft ime. ... New York coming off first shutout loss since falling 9-0 at Green Bay on Oct. 31, 2010, and it was biggest home shutout loss since being routed 37-0 against Buffalo in 1989. ... After scoring four offensive touchdowns in season opener vs. Buffalo, Jets have just two since. ... 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.
