Texans CB Glover Quin Gets Sweet Redemption Against the Titans
After giving up winning touchdowns to Jacksonville and the New York Jets the last two weeks, Glover Quin finally got some redemption yesterday as he became the first player in the Texans’ nine-year history to have three interceptions in one game. His picks were the first of his two-year career and were instrumental in their 20-0 victory over the Tennessee Titans in what was easily their best defensive performance of the year. What makes this even more impressive was that he did so with a broken right hand encased in a cast, and two of his three INT’s were inside Houston’s 10-yard line preserving the shutout. Although this was sweet redemption for Quin and a great game for the Texans, they can’t enjoy the win for too long because next on the schedule is Michael Vick and the Eagles on Thursday night.
Glover Quin joined KILT in Houston to talk about the team playing an inspired game against the Titans, how the games against the Titans always get pretty nasty, and how the confidence is with the Texans’ secondary.
On the team playing an inspired game against the Titans:
“Yeah it has been a hard, tough two weeks and we just wanted to come out and get the monkey off our back and finally play a good game. We came out and we put it all together and we played four quarters as a defense and we had some good results.”
How the games against the Titans always get pretty nasty:
“Right, we expected that coming into the game. We knew it was going to get chippy, we knew it was going to be a physical fight, we knew we had to be ready for 60 minutes.”
How the confidence is with the Texans’ secondary:
“I mean we just have to keep working. We have had one good game but we have got five left to keep working and turn this pass defense around. We got off to a good start right now so we have got to finish up with these last five.”
