The Houston Texans must have watched the Miami Dolphins game earlier on Sunday because the Texans pulled off their own trick play in their 28-22 victory over the New England Patriots Sunday evening. With 9:58 to go in the fourth quarter, Houston had the ball on New England’s six-yard line.
Texans QB handed the ball off to the running back, who appeared to be revving up for an off-tackle run on first and goal. However, the running back pitched the ball to WR DeAndre Hopkins on an end-around. Hopkins continued to run towards the right. As Hopkins was about to be tackled, he pitched the ball back to Watson, who scored a touchdown.
The score put the Texans ahead 28-9 at the time. They needed that TD because the final score ended up 28-22. The win keeps Houston on top of the AFC South Division.
