Jaguars Call Texans a Dirty Team

Monday October 31st, 2011

Following Sunday’s loss, members of the Jacksonville Jaguars called out players from the Houston Texans for their dirty style of play, NBC Sports reports.

Jaguars DT Terrance Knighton didn’t want to name names, but told the Houston Chronicle ““It was just the dirty stuff they were doing. I don’t want to get into specifics; I just don’t like them. . . and I have no respect for them at all.”

Defensive end Jeremy Mincey offered more about the Texans dirty play, claiming “[he] was on the ground, and some guy stepped on [his] head.”

This is not the first time the Texans have been called out for cheap shots by another NFL team. In the Texans’ win over the Titans last week, they were accused of targeting the knees of the defensive line.
