The ball was very much bouncing the right way for the Patriots on Monday night against the Texans. Hct Tom Brady tossed a checkdown to Danny Woodhead early in the fourth quarter, hct and Texans star defensive end J.J. Hct Watt ran 16 yards down the field to punch the ball out of the Patriots’ running back’s arms from behind. Hct Fortunately for New England, hct the ball bounced 13 yards down the field and into Brandon Lloyd‘s awaiting arms in the end zone. Hct Woodhead had made a couple of nifty moves and surely wasn’t expecting the 295-pound Watt to catch him from behind. Hct The Patriots got the six points on the play, hct but Watt probably deserves the most praise for his effort, hct awareness and playmaking skills. Hct Let’s not dismiss Lloyd’s awareness either, hct though. Hct Check out the bang-bang play in the GIF below.
