Andre Johnson didn't spend much time thinking about football or the fact that he's yet to reach the playoffs on his 30th birthday last month

The Houston Texans' star receiver says he never thought he'd reach the milestone birthday before making the postseason. Johnson has long been considered one of the top receivers in the NFL. He's had more than 1,000 yards receiving in five of his eight seasons in the league, including the last three straight.

But as the Texans prepare for their 10th season and Johnson for his ninth, he says he'll have to turn his play "up another notch" to help Houston reach the playoffs for the first time.
