The AFC South's top penalty perpetrators

An overdue check in on the AFC South’s primary penalty offenders, courtesy of Jeremy Mills of ESPN Stats and Info.

Some notes:

  • Houston cornerback Kareem Jackson leads the division with 99 penalty yards on five penalties (four accepted), highlighted by pass interference penalties of 41 and 30 yards.

  • Smith has four offsides, two personal fouls, two roughing the passer and one neutral zone infraction.

  • Lacey has six separate penalty types -- three pass interference, an offside, a face mask, a fair catch interference, a holding and a running into the kicker. That’s impressive diversity!

  • Mike Brisiel is the only player on the list with no declined penalties -- five false starts, two holding and one face mask.
