NASHVILLE - Notes from the Texans' Week 7 victory over the Tennessee Titans at LP Field.

He’s the eighth player to accomplish the feat in the last 10 years, and the first since Titans running back Chris Johnson did it on Nov. 15, 2009, against the Buffalo Bills.
“It wasn’t just me,” Foster said. “It was a collective effort. Our line did a great job. Matt (Schaub) was putting the ball on point. It’s what you sign up for. When you get the ball in your hands you try to take advantage of the situation and make plays.”
Foster had averaged only 3.2 yards per carry in the previous two games. The scary thing is, he might be getting even better now that his early-season hamstring injury is well behind him.
“I didn’t go through training camp, so I still don’t feel like I’m in football shape,” Foster said. “I mean, I’m in good shape, but it’s tough when you don’t go through training camp… I think that’s what you need as a football player, and I’m just starting to get back to my football shape.”
Schaub was 18-of-23 for 296 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. With

There were some occasions where we got one-on-one coverage, and we were able to take advantage of them.”
Daniels is on pace for 62 catches and 811 yards this season. That would be the most since his 70-catch, 862-yard Pro Bowl season in 2008.
The Texans picked off Matt Hasselbeck twice on Sunday, marking the sixth consecutive game in which they’ve recorded an interception.
Manning intercepted Hasselbeck in the second quarter on a deep throw over the middle. The Texans capitalized with a 78-yard touchdown drive. Cornerback

Two of Rackers’ seven kickoffs on Sunday went for touchbacks. The Titans averaged only 20.6 yards on the five that were returned. Rackers laid out Marc Mariani with a jarring hit in the third quarter, adding to his total as the NFL’s all-time leader among kickers in special teams tackles.
