VIDEO: J.J. Watt Interception Return Gives Texans First Lead Over Bengals

Andy Dalton and the Cincinnati Bengals had done nearly everything right in the first half against the Houston Texans. And then J.J. Watt made a play, intercepting a Dalton pass at the line of scrimmage and rumbling 29 yards for a touchdown to give the Texans their first lead of the day at 17-10.

The pick spoils what had been a nearly flawless first half for Dalton in his playoff debut. He is 13-for-18 for 120 yards, and had propped up the Cincinnati offense that was struggling to put together a running game.

But an interception that was very much on Dalton — Watt makes an impressive play, but only because the ball is coming right at him — may linger into halftime and longer.
