The key for the Houston Texans’ defensive line in 2023 is they were going to be attacking.
Houston showcased some of their attack profile on third-and-2 with 13:45 to go in the first quarter Sunday afternoon against the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium. Defensive end Jonathan Greenard came off the edge and took down Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson for a key sack to force Baltimore into a three-and-out.
Greenard had a disappointing 2022 as he played in eight games with four starts, generating just 1.5 sacks. With the former 2020 third-rounder taking down Jackson on Opening Day, it gives Greenard a fast start towards matching his career high of 8.0 from 2021.
