Jackson says PI was 'a horrible call'

The Texans were penalized seven times for 95 yards on Sunday, but no call was bigger than the pass interference on Kareem Jackson in the first quarter.

"That was a horrible call. Simple as that," Jackson said. "That was a bad call. Can’t dwell on it, just have to play."

Jackson had tight coverage on Brian Quick down the right sidelines as the deep pass from Sam Bradford fell incomplete. But Jackson was flagged for defensive pass interference. The Rams scored a touchdown on that drive and went on to smash the Texans 38-13 on Sunday afternoon.

"Once the flag is thrown, I don’t think they’re going to reverse it," Jackson said. "I can ask them what I do wrong and see what they say. But at the end of the day, the flag is thrown, there’s nothing I can do."

That one call took the Rams from their own 35-yard-line and put them on the Houston 25, a gain of 40 yards.

"I thought I was in great position," Jackson said. "Doing everything I was taught, I was coached to do. Relying on my technique, being on top for the ball. What else am I supposed to do?"

This is not the first time Jackson has disagreed with a call against him this season. The team was penalized 15 yards against Seattle when Jackson picked up a reciever and slammed him to the ground. That penalty put the Seahawks in field goal range and they kicked the game-winner four plays later. He said he didn't know what he did wrong on that play either.

Jackson was also fined $42,000 for a hit against the Titans in Week 2.
 
"I don’t know what the case is," Jackson said. "I don’t know what the refs are looking at as far as what I’m doing wrong. I’ve just got to play. I won’t change how I play. In my opinion, I think I’m doing what I’m supposed to do. I’m relying on my technique, being on top. I thought we had the right look for the ball and the player just as much as the receiver did. It seems like we are coming out on the short end of the stick as far as doing things right as a defensive player. I guess that is what the game is going to now."
