This marks the 39th of 53 weeks of announcing a member of my all time team. In weeks 13/26/39 and 52 there will be an additional post of Honorable Mention players (active) that make my team for one reason or another.
This week, J.J. Watt, Houston Texans, a helluva football player, but a better person.
I could have easily gone with his practice appearance in overalls, or the charity softball game in overalls, but simply trying to keep these guys in uniform. Though I might have to stray from that at some point down the line.
On this day in 2013, Peyton Manning broke the NFL Single Season Touchdown Passes record for the second time by dropping #’s 48,49,50 & 51 on the Houston Texans.
J.J. had a dog, and bingo was his name-o. Again, I’ll be nice, and just say that Watt in 2012 had a less than desirable head coach.
On This Day:
early to Dom Capers’ Houston Texans Peyton Manning threw two touchdown passes
in the final two minutes of the first half to take a 17-14 halftime lead. Manning
and his team pushed the lead to a 30-21 final.
Manning finished 22/30 269 for 3 touchdown passes. He hit Marcus Pollard (1)with
the first, and Reggie Wayne (2,57) for the final two.
