Braxton Miller has spent the preseason trying to impress his new Houston Texan teammates and coaches at wide receiver. On Sunday, a different former Buckeye stole the show with his hands and speed.
Linebacker John Simon made a spectacular interception off of Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer in the Texans third game of the NFL preseason. But he wasn’t done there.
After making the pick, Simon gathered himself and took off, sailing down the sideline for a 59-yard touchdown return. Watch the highlight below:
He tipped it.
He picked it.
He took it to the HOUSE.
