WATCH: Texans S Jalen Pitre gets first career interception

Houston Texans safety Jalen Pitre got his first career interception in Week 3 against the Chicago Bears.

With 2:55 to go in the first quarter, Pitre fielded an overthrown pass by quarterback Justin Fields as he was looking for tight end Cole Kmet. Pitre fumbled the takeaway, but quickly on top of the ball to retain possession for the Texans.

The Texans picked Pitre in the second round from Baylor. The No. 37 overall pick, who is also an alumnus of nearby Stafford High School, has been a key piece of coach Lovie Smith’s revitalized Tampa 2 scheme. Houston fans are hopeful this is the first of many picks for the rookie.
