by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Houston lost despite big performances from defensive ends Antonio Smith (2 sacks) and J.J. Watt (sack, blocked field goal, 5 QB hits). The Texans DST gets an easier matchup Week 10 at Arizona.

J.J. Watt: Rob Turner tried to blow out my knee


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

"I'm not trying to get my knee blown out. That's why there's a rule in place," said the defending NFL Defensive Player of the Year. "And it was clearly blatant. I mean, you peel back around and you're going towards your own goal line, you know exactly what you're doing. You're going low on somebody's knee. You respect that this is people's job. This is your life ... that's just something you don't do."

Watt added that he confronted Turner about his perceived intention after the play.
