Houston (CBS Houston) - A week after recording 14 penalties for 177 yards against the Jaguars, interim head coach Wade Phillips decided to bring in officials for Wednesday’s practice.

“We had a whole group of officials that were calling penalties and throwing flags,” Phillips said. “We want to overemphasize, certainly, that area so we can cut down on the number of penalties.”

The Texans rank 15th in the NFL in penalties but there miscues have often come at costly times. Part of Phillips’ philosophy revolves around making practice feel more game-like.

“The only way I know (how to reduce penalties) is attack the problem,” Phillips said. “Some of (the changes) are subtle, some of them are more, a lot different than what they are used to.”
