Texans-Bengals: J.J. Watt destroys center with a spear on a lateral to end game

The "Thursday Night Football" matchup between the Bengals and the Texans did not feature much in the way of excitement. There was John Ross's fumble and Andy Dalton's ensuing tackle, A.J. Green's 50-yard catch in triple coverage, Deshaun Watson's 49-yard scamper through the Bengals defense ... and that's about it. 

There were 553 yards of total offense and 774 total yards of punts. The game was not fun. 

The last play of the game, though, was very fun. Right up until J.J. Watt decided he had had just about enough of the Bengals missing around with their silly laterals and decided to plant Bengals center Russell Bodine into the ground. 

Game over, indeed.
