Nearly four years later, J.J. Watt still is trying to forget.
In 2012, the Houston TexansÂ wore letterman jackets when theyÂ traveled to Foxboro, Mass., for a “Monday Night Football” showdown with theÂ New England Patriots, a game they wound up losing 42-14. There’s been no indication that the Texans will pull a similar stunt when they return to Gillette Stadium on Thursday night for a Week 3 matchup against the Patriots, and Watt just wants to forget that it ever happened.
“I’ve got no idea,” Watt told the Houston Chronicle, when asked about where the infamous jacket is located. “Those were some bad memories.”
Watt wasn’t sure if he even still has the jacket.
“I don’t think so,” Watt said. “I hope not. I don’t want to bring that back up at all. Those were some bad days.”
