Isaiah Thomas tells John Wallach on Toucher & Rich the story of when he visited the Seahawks training facility to take on their free throw shooting champ Tyler Lockette, and the swag they gave him for coming.
FOXBORO -- Ryan Allen was the definition of an x-factor on Thursday night against the Texans.
He punted seven times for an average of 47.6 yards per boot, and none of them were returned. A career-high six of his seven landed inside the 20-yard line, and the one that did not was marked right at the 20. He dropped his other punts at the 11, 10, 10, 14, 5 and 4-yard lines, helping to limit Houston's average starting field position to the 15-yard line.
Allen has won the award now twice in his career. He also took it home in 2014 following a Week 14 win over the Chargers.
