Default An unlikely "hero" on the Texans defense

I've just got to give a shout out to Allan Ball who made 2 big plays in the waning moment to end the game.

First, he made a nice play to break up the ball to Robinson on a fade route on third and ten.

Then on 4th down, he stayed with Blackmon well on the deep dig route, helping to force an errant throw (along with the pass rush.)

On the first throw, he demonstrated that the CB doesn't have to turn his head and can still defend a pass if he plays his technique well.
(Derek Cox also defended a fade to AJ in the endzone in the same way.)

On the second throw, due to his position, he was able to look at the ball and was not called for PI even though he arrived a hair early, and the ball seemed to be a little behind the receiver.
