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:
