Last night's New England Patriots-Houston Texans matchup provided plenty of interesting storylines leading up to kickoff -- one of which was two players, considered to be among the best at their positions, facing off against each other.
Ultimately, Tom Brady walked out with the better outcome. J.J. Watt, though playing with a broken hand, only managed three tackles, and never got the chance to sack Brady. The Texans have never beaten the Pats during Watt's tenure there, and are now winless in four attempts (including the 2012 playoffs).
Surely, both of these top performers would make for a memorable handshake after the game, right?
Oh.Tom Brady blowing off JJ Watt is the power move of the night. https://t.co/bGDOIiRX4L— Toucher and Rich (@Toucherandrich) December 14, 2015
There's still a chance this postgame handshake could be replicated in the playoffs. Last night's loss gives the Texans a 6-7 record, which ties them with Indianapolis for first in the dreadful AFC South.
