Sack Attack

Texans player of the game: D.J. Reader gets going to spark defense in win

Zach Tarrant/Houston

The Texans had a huge day on defense getting after Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. The spark and first to get the action going was interior lineman D.J. Reader.

Reader was all over the place for the Texans abusing the Chargers offensive line.

Reader made all of his statistical impact in the first half. He was in on two sacks, splitting one of them. He hit Philip Rivers three time on the day. Later in the second half the Texans pressure stymied a ton of the Chargers seeing J.J. Watt get to the quarterback and Whitney Mercilus grab a sack as well.

If Reader continues to play this well he could see a contract extension come his way this offseason.
