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