Some Jacksonville Jaguars players accused some Houston Texans players of being "dirty" following Sunday's 24-14 loss. I didn't recall seeing anything specific about dirty play, other than the shot Blaine Gabbert took that sent him to the sideline for a couple of plays. Even that I wouldn't classify as a dirty shot. Defensive tackle Terrance Knighton accused a Texans player of stepping on his head during the game. Knighton told Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union, "They're some nasty guys. I was on the ground and a guy stepped on my head. That's very dirty. It is what it is. Hopefully he'll get fined." Jeremy Mincey also made some vague accusations after the game, but neither player would name names.
Well, I'll name a name: Offensive tackle Duane Brown.
Brown punched Jaguars linebacker Clint Session in the stomach after the forced fumble/lateral play. As you can see in the clip, the local Jaguars All Access show, analyst Jeff Lageman showed the incident pretty clearly. As Brown was getting up, he punched Session in the stomach while he was laying on his back on the sideline. Session didn't make a big deal about it when it was brought up and he wasn't one of the Jaguars players complaining about dirty play, he just noted that things like that do not belong in the game.
It will be interesting to see if Duane Brown gets fined for the shot.
