- Houston cornerback Kareem Jackson leads the division with 99 penalty yards on five penalties (four accepted), highlighted by pass interference penalties of 41 and 30 yards.
- Smith has four offsides, two personal fouls, two roughing the passer and one neutral zone infraction.
- Lacey has six separate penalty types -- three pass interference, an offside, a face mask, a fair catch interference, a holding and a running into the kicker. That’s impressive diversity!
- Mike Brisiel is the only player on the list with no declined penalties -- five false starts, two holding and one face mask.
