Texans 'very disappointed' in Ross Blacklock's crucial errors in loss


Texans defensive tackle Ross Blacklock is infected with the penalty bug.

For the second consecutive game, Blacklock was flagged twice for infractions.

This time, the former second-round draft pick committed crucial errors during a 21-14 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday at NRG Stadium.

First, Blacklock was flagged for leverage to give the Jets a first down instead of a field goal.

On the ensuing play, a sack by defensive end Jacob Martin, the Missouri City native was penalized for offsides one week after committing two neutral zone penalties in a road win over the Tennessee Titans.

That led to Jets rookie quarterback Zach Wilson's four-yard touchdown run to give New York an 18-14 lead and what wound up being the game-winning touchdown.

“Very disappointed," Texans coach David Culley said. "We talked about not having critical penalties, but it's part of it when you're playing and he plays hard all the time. Obviously, we've had some of those type of penalties. He's just got to get better with that.”
