HOUSTON (AP) - Andre Johnson is having another great season for the Houston Texans.
The star receiver certainly isn't celebrating it with the Texans mired in a franchise-record 13-game skid.
He told The Associated Press this week that dealing with another terrible season after already suffering through the lean times early in franchise history has taken the joy out of playing the game he loves.
He says: ''You don't expect to go back through it. You think you're past that stage as a team ... it is no fun at all.''
This has been the worst season for Johnson because the Texans were coming off consecutive playoff appearances and were expected to contend for a Super Bowl. Instead they need a win at Tennessee on Sunday to avoid matching their franchise-worst record of 2-14 from 2005.
