Not a lot of attention was paid to the Texans-Titans game (and rightfully so – both teams are essentially out of playoff contention). But Sunday’s action gave us Cortland Finnegan vs. Andre Johnson Round 2. How did it go?
Johnson was targeted 12 times. He caught six passes for 58 yards, including a 12-yard touchdown. And he threw zero punches.
“The NFL really came down hard on us this week with a lot of conference calls, just making sure we represented the NFL well this week,” Finnegan told the Tennessean. “That’s big for the kids and also for the NFL, and we both knew that. We just wanted a good football game.”
Finnegan and Johnson were both fined $25,000 for their fight in Week 12.
“I just wanted to play a good football game.,” Finnegan said. “Unfortunately, I gave up a touchdown vs. him, but he’s one of those elite receivers. You want to hold him in check but it’s tough.”
