Johnson, Finnegan brawl in Texans' 20-0 win

HOUSTON (AP) -- Houston snapped a four-game losing streak while receiver Andre Johnson and cornerback Cortland Finnegan were ejected for fighting in the fourth quarter of the Texans' 20-0 win over Tennessee on Sunday.

Arian Foster rushed for 143 yards and caught nine passes for the Texans (5-6), who were on their way to their first shutout since 2004 when Johnson and Finnegan got into a fistfight midway through the fourth quarter.

Finnegan set it off by pushing up Johnson's facemask at the line of scrimmage. Johnson ripped off Finnegan's helmet and landed at least two punches to Finnegan's head and neck. Finnegan tore off Johnson's helmet before players and referees intervened.

The incident ended a tumultuous week for the Titans (5-6), who've lost four in a row.
