DJ Swearinger commits boneheaded taunting, holding penalties
Houston Texans rookie safety DJ Swearinger cost his team three points with a couple of boneheaded penalties he committed before halftime against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday.
After stopping the Jags on a 3rd and 2 play, the second-round pick from South Carolina taunted his opponent and was penalized. Instead of the Jags having to punt with 34 seconds left in the half, they got an extra 15 yards and an automatic first down.
On the very next play, Swearinger was penalized for defensive holding. The holding call negated an interception by the Texans that probably would not have happened if not for Swearinger holding Marcedes Lewis.
The 5-yard holding penalty gave the Jags an automatic first down. The Texans also committed a personal foul on the play for good measure.
The Jags ended up making a 40-yard field goal on the drive to go up 17-7 before halftime. They can thank Swearinger for the assist.
Look at this guy with his hands on his hips all like a bossy lady:
Swearinger was like, “I told you to go clean your bedroom. How many times do I have to tell you to clean your room?”
Nice job, chump.
