The Texans picked off three more passes on Sunday against Tennessee, and along with J.J. Watt's fumble recovery in the fourth quarter, Houston pushed their NFL-best takeaway mark to 28 in 2014.
Johnathan Joseph, Jumal Rolle and A.J. Bouye each snared an interception in the blowout. The latter two have gotten a bit more playing time while Kareem Jackson's been out with a knee injury. But the fifth-year veteran will likely be back this weekend against the Jaguars, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
"It's day-to-day, but I feel better about his chances of playing this week than I did at this time last week," O'Brien said.
Rolle leads the team with three picks this season, while Joseph and Bouye each have a pair of interceptions apiece. As a defense, 11 total players have combined to pick off 15 passes in 2014. Plus, three of those picks have been for scores, and the Texans are averaging 27.7 yards per interception return.
Last year, the Texans had seven interceptions as a team, and averaged 12.3 yards per interception return. Their lone touchdown off a pick came in the season opener against the Chargers when Brian Cushing returned a fourth quarter interception for a score.
