MINNEAPOLIS -- Andre Johnson's record streaks were stopped rather quietly.In the din of the Metrodome against a Minnesota defense eager to be back from the bye week, Houston's roll was halted, too.
• Gus Frerotte improved to 4-2 as a starter this season as he completed 11-for-18 passes for 182 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. It's his seventh career three-touchdown passing game and second as a member of the Vikings (Sept. 28, 2003 -- four passing TDs vs. San Francisco).
• Bernard Berrian recorded a receiving TD for the third straight game and collected 104 receiving yards, his sixth career 100-yard receiving game and third this season.
• Adrian Peterson rushed for 139 yards and a TD, his third straight 100-yard rushing game and fifth of the season.
• The Texans fell short of their first four-game win streak in team history.
