JJ Watt touchdown catch gets ‘Turn Down for Watt’ remix (Video)

JJ Watt can do it all for the Houston Texans.

The Texans defensive end lined up on offense for Houston on Sunday and caught a 1-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter to make it 7-0 Houston over Oakland. It was Watt’s first career offensive touchdown.

JJ Watt touchdown catchWatt played some tight end in college, but this was his first time doing it in the NFL.

According to ESPN’s Tania Ganguli, the Texans’ coaches, who worked with Mike Vrabel in New England (Vrabel caught 10 touchdowns for the Pats), had been working on this play at practice during the week. They broke it out in the game and it paid off. And thankfully for us, our buddy World of Isaac on Twitter gave it the “Turn Down for What” treatment it deserves.

RG3 could be out for season with dislocated ankle

RG3 dislocated his left ankle in the first quarter of Sunday’s Washington Redskins-Jacksonville Jaguars game and could be out for the season according to his doctor.

Dr. Mark Adickes tweeted that a dislocated ankle usually occurs with a fracture, meaning he thinks Griffin will be out for the season.

Tests are being conducted on Griffin to determine his status.

With Kirk Cousins looking so good after coming on for Washington, don’t be surprised if the ‘Skins are in no rush to bring back RG3.

Mike Wallace makes incredible one-handed TD catch (Video)

Mike-WallaceMiami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace reeled in one of the best touchdowns catches you will see this season on Sunday. Wallace, who was well-covered, caught the ball with one hand and was able to secure the pass without ever using his other hand.

Wallace also took a pretty big hit from Buffalo Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore, but he still managed to get his leg down inbounds and hang onto the pass. Ryan Tannehill made a perfect throw, too. He and Wallace seem to have much better chemistry this season with new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor calling plays.

Hannah Storm nearly starts crying during emotional speech about NFL’s stance towards women

Hannah StormHannah Storm gave an emotional speech to close down ESPN’s “NFL Countdown” show on Sunday morning where she shared commentary on the NFL’s stance towards domestic violence and female fans.

Storm brought up the Ray Rice discipline and how disappointed she was that the league needed to wait to see the video before giving a harsher punishment to the former Ravens running back. Her ultimate point was to pose the question: what does the league stand for?

ESPN analyst Cris Carter also gave an impassioned speech on Sunday. Carter’s thoughts related more to Adrian Peterson and his realization that some of the things his mother did while raising him were wrong. Now that he is older and wiser, he has decided what are acceptable methods of discipline.

Marcus Vick just learns about Adrian Peterson child abuse case, admits he needs to ‘goggle’ story

Marcus VickMarcus Vick isn’t exactly Mr. Current Events, that’s for sure.

Vick, the younger and more troubled (as hard as that is to believe) brother of Jets backup quarterback Michael Vick, went on Twitter Sunday and was incredulous that Adrian Peterson was not playing for the Vikings against the Patriots. That’s because Marcus had no clue that Peterson had been indicted on charges for injuring his child.

Here’s how the tale unfolded on Twitter:

Then when someone told him he was stupid for saying a child abuser should play, Vick responded by saying “bulls—.”

Look at how shocked he was to learn about Peterson’s child injury charges.

Vick realized people weren’t joking and that he should probably research the matter.

Once he got caught up, Vick decided he was ready to weigh-in with his opinion:

Here, Marcus, let me spare you a click: just read this.

RG3 injury video – Griffin somehow hurts ankle on this play

Just in case there were any questions about Robert Griffin III’s fragility, we present this video.

RG3 was knocked out of Sunday’s Redskins-Jaguars game after hurting his ankle on the play seen above in the first quarter. The injury appeared to be of the non-contact variety, but we cannot be 100 percent certain what went wrong or caused it.

Griffin hurt his right knee in January, 2013, and spent all last season trying to recover. This time it looks like his left ankle.

As if that weren’t enough, wide receiver DeSean Jackson left with a shoulder injury a few plays after Kirk Cousins entered the game.
