Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt was given credit for another sack, the team announced, after the league's statisticians reviewed the fourth-down play where Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker slipped and fumbled the football.

It was originally ruled that Locker had fumbled before any contact was made, but after review, Watt was given credit for the additional sack, giving him 16.5 for the season, one behind NFL leader Aldon Smith of San Francisco.
