Big Players make Big Plays in Big Games
 
JJ Watt is my Big Players make Big Plays in Big Games guy for this game. The way he caught the bullet as it left the barrel of the gun was remarkable and momentum changing, IMO. What is YOUR moment that stood out for you?

Andre Johnson for me. When I saw him all alone in the area and the ball coming towards him, I already knew what would happen. It was fitting. That in my opinion, put the game out of reach for the Bungholes. The Foster run is what sealed it!

I loved getting to see AJ catch a TD pass, but JJ Watt catching that ball the way he did, changed the game.

It's GOT to be JJ Watt.

I'm not a big believer in momentum, but it sure did feel like the whole game changed after that one play. And then the sack.

He doesn't get a lot of hype...but name a defensive player you would take over him right now from last years draft...maybe Von Miller? WE got a steal

JJ WATT!! Boy played his heart out, and it paid off!! That JJ play was by far one of the BEST I've ever seen. Wade commented on the news last night that JJ does this in practice all the time. Wade was wondering what took him so long!

I think we were all excited watching AJ make a big play, but, overall, he looked a little rusty. JMO!! He's gettin his groove back though, and he'll be AWESOME against the birds!!

The Watt play was definitely the Versus NFL Turning Point.

All 3 were big, but the Watt play changed the momentum and set the tone for the 2nd half. The D was awesome in the final 2 quarters.

Arian Foster was saying the same thing during his interview after the game on NFL Network. Also said Watt's play was the game changer and I agree, it was. Didn't see the Texans losing after that.

JJ Watt by far, but I will say I was very impressed with Earl mitchell. The guy played great from the nose

The Watt play was definitely one of the game changing plays, but on offense, I'd say one of the big plays that maybe is under the radar is Owen Daniels' catch between two defenders for a first down (which was challenged and confirmed). That was clutch!

I have to choose the same play you choose.... If you let me :D

Watt The F!!!!! :D he was awesome

The reason the Texans are advancing is due to multiple players making big plays. Both teams had good game plans. But it was the Texans plays (Watt, Foster, AJ) that stepped up and make explosive plays the opponent can't anticipate. That's how championships are won. Great players overachieving.

Very clutch. Yates should have never thrown the ball there (Foster was open on the swing), but Daniels bailed him out. And that's basically what the Texans have been saying to Yates. "We've got your back."

I think that interception by JJ was incredible and definately a momentum changer. It was like a reward for all the crap he took in the Colts game.

I can honestly say I have NEVER seen a play like that before. I've seen DLinemen tip it to themselves, bet never have one literally "jump the route". Dude stopped and waited on the throw, then jumped like a power forward and snagged the ball like he had Lester Hayes style Stickum on his hands.

The last time I saw that happen was when Aaron Schobel did it to Tom Brady a couple of years ago. It's extremely impressive that Watt already has that kind of anticipation as a rookie.
