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