That was a strong way to end a football game.

J.J. Watt punctuated Houston’s 13-9 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night with a big hit to end the game.
The Bengals were down to their final play at their 20 and needed to go 80 yards to win the game. They were too far for a Hail Mary, so they tried to run a play involving multiple laterals. They were slowly progressing up the field one lateral at a time, until Watt ended it all.
After Andy Dalton passed to center Russell Bodine, Watt was there to de-cleat him.
That perfect tackle — and massive hit — ended the game on the spot, giving the 1-1 Texans their first win of the season. Cincinnati now is 0-2 and only has scored nine points all season. Yikes.
