HOUSTON (AP) — Houston Texans safety Glover Quin hardly thinks about it. He also never wants to completely forget it.

Two years ago in Jacksonville, Quin tried to knock down a 50-yard desperation heave from David Garrard and ended up giving up the winning score.

Before the final play, Quin had led the Texans with 13 solo tackles, including one for a loss. The score was 24-all with 3 seconds left, and Jacksonville had the ball at midfield. Garrard heaved the ball toward the end zone, and Quin smacked the ball volleyball-style and into the waiting arms of Mike Thomas, who slipped into the end zone for the deciding TD.

The Texans (1-0) return to Jacksonville (0-1) for a game this weekend against a division foe.
