Breakfast: John Simon makes big plays in W vs. Jags


John Simon's name littered the stat sheet, in a good way, in Sunday's win at Jacksonville.

The Texans outside linebacker finished with six tackles, a sack, two tackles for a loss and a batted pass in the 24-20 victory, but he was focused on the team win.

"It's big for us," Simon said. "We wanted to put a complete game together, and we still got a lot of things we need to work on."

Simon dropped Bortes for a 10-yard sack in the fourth quarter. The Jaguars were facing a 3rd-and-10 at the Houston 44-yard line. Jacksonville was forced to punt with 6:12 remaining in the contest.

"We were just running a pressure up front, trying to get guys free, and I was the one that came free," Simon said. "It was my responsibility to make the play, and all I know is there was a big pile on the quarterback so a lot of guys got there, and that's the job of the rush."

Simon and the Texans defense forced a pair of Jacksonville turnovers on the day, and helped limit the Jaguars ground game to just 80 yards rushing on the day.
