Houston Texans defensive end Derek Rivers made his presence felt against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Week 15 matchup Sunday afternoon at TIAA Bank Field.

Rivers, who signed a contract extension that keeps him through the 2022 season, managed to sack the No. 1 overall pick in the third quarter on Jacksonville’s opening drive of the half. The three-and-out forced the Jaguars to punt the ball back to the Texans, who then added another three points to increase their lead to 23-10.

Rivers told reporters on Dec. 17 why he decided to stay with Houston.

“A lot of times when you leave a team, you miss the people that you met there,” Rivers said. “Just grateful to be able to be around some of these men again and to come back. Obviously it’s been a down year, but obviously next year come back and try to be better.”
