LOOKING BACKBy John Turney
In Week Two of this NFL season, the Houston Texans travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals on Thursday Night Football. While it wasn;t the most exciting game of the season there were some interesting things.
One was a play in the third quarter, at around the 2:30 mark, where Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, this time playing right end, had four hats on him, which is coach-speak for having four blockers on him. A quadruple-team.
