Yesterday’s AFC divisional-round playoff game ended up being much better than anyone had expected. Perhaps today’s will be, too.
Per multiple reports and accounts, Texans defensive end J.J. Watt spit on the Patriots logo in the middle of the field at Gillette Stadium during pregame warmups. He then reportedly wiped his feet on the cartoon profile of Elvis and/or Jay Leno and/or maybe even a young Christopher Walken.
Whether the indignity impacts the game remains to be seen. But it shows that Watt will be bringing a nasty streak to the rematch of a December game in which Watt largely disappeared.
