The Houston Texans are just screwing around with the New England Patriots now. After the Patriots cut their deficit to 21-9, Deshaun Watson responded by leading the Texans into the red zone. On 1st and Goal, the ball was snapped to running back Carlos Hyde, who handed the ball off to DeAndre Hopkins on a jet sweep. As he ran to the outside, Hopkins tossed it to Watson, who dove inside the pylon for the crafty touchdown.

That's some Harlem Globetrotters-level stuff from the Houston Texans. And for all you stat-lovers and fantasy football players, that's officially a touchdown pass for Hopkins.
