Pro Football Focus assembled their Team of the Week for the first batch of NFL games in 2021. While your Houston Texans are usually snubbed on these sorts of lists so far this year, linebacker Christian Kirksey got the nod for his performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars this past weekend.
After taking the field Sunday, Kirksey had 6 combined stops, 5 solo tackles, 1 assist, 2 tackles for loss, 2 passes defensed and 1 interception. This earned the 8-year veteran an 82.9 overall grade at PFF. His run defense graded out at 69.5, pass rush at 55.
