Texans’ Danieal Manning Takes A Football To The Groin During Botched Interception (GIF)
If you happened to look at just the scores from yesterday’s NFL action, you might have seen that the Texans beat the Jaguars 43-37 in overtime and thought, “wow, close call for the Texans.”
However, in reality, “close call” doesn’t tell half of the story. Jacksonville, who was 1-8 heading into the game in Houston, was actually leading the Texans 34-20 with just 13 minutes remaining in the game. The Texans, who entered the game with an 8-1 record, did not manage to tie the game at 34-34 until the 3:52 mark.
So in other words, this was almost the biggest upset of the 2012 NFL season. And if the Jags had actually pulled it off, this GIF would have summed up the Texans’ day:
Hey, who doesn’t love nutshots, right?
In case you were wondering, that’s Texas safety Danieal Manning. As you can see, he’s trying to catch the ball and complete the interception, but instead, it slips through his hands and whacks him in the gonads.
Luckily for the Texans, this image will not encapsulate the biggest upset of the year in the NFL. Unfortunately for Manning, it still encapsulates one of his most painful moments of the season.
