Bills Gets Crazy Pick-Six By Planting A Wide Receiver Tree
September 3 / David Young / SportsGrid
We all complain about how meaningless the preseason is, but tonight the Bills have reminded us why we watch these games. Basketball and hockey are gone, no one cares about tennis or golf, and while baseball can be worth watching, it's a long damn season of watching men scratch themselves in loose pants (and yes, that includes Subway commercials). So the reason we watch the NFL preseason is no matter what star or scrub is on the field, we get a chance to see violent things like this:
The Lions' Jeremy Ross extended to catch Dan Orlovsky's pass, and so the Bills' Merrill Noel decided to plant a Ross tree. That caused the WR to cough up the ball (and dinner) and Ron Brooks caught it and took it all the way back for an 81-yard TD.
Since it worked so well, look for the Bills D to put this one in the regular season playbook under "Sick Pick-Six Stick Tricks."
