First of all, is there any player in NFL history that loves catching Hail Mary’s more than Jaelen Strong? Here he is last year getting his Rod Tidwell on for the Sun Devils against USC…
Not a bad way to get on the board for your first NFL touchdown huh? It wasn’t all fun and games for the Texans young players though, as Ryan Mallet took his (2nd? 3rd? 4th?) benching pretty hard. He was 7/10 for 50 yards when he got pulled so it’s not like he was the worst.
But obviously after that divine intervention, it became Hoyer’s night to shine..
Although when I say “night to shine” I don’t mean that literally because not only did he throw the game losing interception but even the waterboy forgot he was playing out there…

In the end the Colts walked away 2-0 without Andrew Luck and 40 year old Matt Hasselbeck got to enjoy one last swansong for his super classy career. Let the tears flow you sick old dog!
Probably the only fluids he had left in his body at that point..
