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