Entering 11th season, Houston's Johnson knows his time to get to the Super Bowl is running out

Andre Johnson had the best year of his career last season.

But at 32, Johnson knows his window for winning a championship is closing. He's determined to do even more this season to help the Houston Texans accomplish their goal of reaching the Super Bowl.

He says the Texans: "have a great shot at doing it," and that they have to take advantage of opportunities this year.

Johnson had 112 receptions for 1,598 yards — both career highs — last season in helping Houston make its second straight playoff appearance. It was the third 1,500-yard season of his 10-year career and a bounce-back year after he played just seven games and finished with a career-worst 492 yards receiving in 2011.

This season Johnson is helping mold Houston's young receivers in hopes that it will improve an already potent offense.
