The Houston Texans are supposed to be one of the best teams in the NFL this year, but they’ve had some hiccups, including some very erratic play by Matt Schaub, their starting quarterback. Going into yesterday’s game, Schaub had thrown a “pick-6” — an interception that was returned by the other team for a touchdown — in three consecutive games. And yesterday, the visiting St. Louis Rams jumped out to a lead, so when Schaub got hurt and the backup QB had to come in, the fans in Houston cheered.
The football gods took notice of this.
That backup quarterback promptly came in and…threw a pick-6.
Taunt not the football gods! For they are a spiteful bunch.
