Members of the Houston Texans accused Tennessee Titans tackle David Stewart of employing some dirty tactics during their game on Sunday, including pulling the hair of Houston linebacker Brooks Reed, the Houston Chronicle reported. "I saw some things I've never seen before," Texans defensive end Antonio Smith told the Chronicle. "I saw him try to pull (Reed's) hair out, tried to ride somebody's back, which I thought was kind of funny, actually." The 6-foot-7, 315-pound Stewart is in his eighth NFL season. "He's like (Dolphins lineman Richie) Incognito," Texans outside linebacker Connor Barwin said of Stewart. "Everybody will say it -- he's a dirty player. He threw a punch at me. He threw a punch at Brooks." Texans safety Danieal Manning told the Chronicle of a particular play in the second half that got his attention. "One play, I saw J-Joe (cornerback Johnathan Joseph) making a tackle, and (Stewart) was around the pile, and he was trying to help (running back) Chris Johnson up," Manning said. "J-Joe was down. He was kneeing J-Joe, and I said, 'This guy's crazy.'" Reed said Stewart's style helped motivate the Texans, who won the game 38-14. Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck told the Chronicle that Stewart may have developed a reputation. "I saw people punch (Stewart) in the face, and there was no (flag)," Hasselbeck said. "I don't know what to say. I guess his reputation got him."
