FOXBORO -- Reports surfaced before that game that Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt trotted out to midfield and then both spit and wiped his feet on the Patriots logo at Gillette Stadium during pregame warmups.
After his Texans' 41-28 loss, Watt admitted he did it . . . but that he didn't mean anything by it.
"I do that every game, home or away," said Watt. "I go out to midfield, I jog out there, spit a little bit, wipe my feet off, and then I go out and do my stretch. No drama there, that's 100 percent what I do every game, home or away."
