Jaguars defensive end Jeremy Mincey ranted claims of the Texans being a dirty team following their 24-14 loss at Houston. He says one of the Texans players stepped on his head when he was on the ground after a play and that multiple players got him with cheap shots.
“Hopefully, he gets fined,” Mincey said about the unnamed Texans player he claims stepped on him. “They are some nasty guys. All of them weren’t like that – just a few of them. I can’t pinpoint anybody. just got cheap-shotted a few times.”
Mincey says he didn’t retaliate against the Texans.
“Two wrongs don’t make a right. I’m not going to stoop down to their level.”
These claims come days after Jaguars nose tackle Terrance Knighton publicly announced his hate for Houston and the Texans, saying they have an “arrogance about them”.
Knighton still had more backlash to dish about the Texans after the loss.
“I still don’t like them; and I have no respect for the at all,” said Knighton, who had a poster of Texans running back Arian Foster taped up in locker. “We’ll see them again.”
The Jaguars defense did force two Texans turnovers, but Foster still carried the ball 33 times for 112 yards and one touchdown against the Jaguars defense Sunday.
Like Mincey, Knighton refused to credit those anonymous “dirty” players.
“I just don’t like them,” Knighton added. “I’m not going to get into names, but we play them again.”
The Texans (5-3) are 3-0 in the division, while the Jaguars (2-6) are 1-1 in AFC South. The rival teams will meet again in Jacksonville on Nov. 27.
