Sunday's incident was not the first time that Cortland Finnegan and Andre Johnson had a run-in against each other. From Sept. 2009: Houston Texans receivers Andre Johnson and Jacoby Jones have been fined by the NFL for their roles in a fight during Sunday's 34-31 win over Tennessee. Johnson was fined $7,500 for unnecessary roughness for taking Tennessee's Cortland Finnegan to the ground by the facemask after the play was over, and Jones was fined $5,000 for entering the fight unnecessarily. Tennessee's Jason Jones was fined $5,000 for his part in the fight earlier this week. He was ejected from the game after an official said he threw a punch in the altercation on Houston's sideline.
Houston's Andre Johnson needed 4 catches for 60 this season, he has surpassed that Sunday. It means it's Johnson's 8th straight season with 60 catches, the first receiver in NFL history to catch 60 or more passes in each of his first 8 seasons. He was previously tied with our own Keyshawn Johnson with 7 straight seasons.
