There's nothing that can turn the tide in a football game as quickly and dramatically as an interception returned for a touchdown in a one-score game. And this is especially true when that pick comes in the opponent's end zone as they are knocking on the door to put up six points of their own.
Well, Justin Reid gave the Washington Redskins a brutal reminder in just how much energy and momentum comes with these kinds of takeaways on a 3rd & Goal situation in D.C.
It wasn't exactly a great toss to begin with, considering Reid was simply the closest of three Texans defenders crowding the ball's pathway on the throw. However, picking it off was only the half of it, as Reid turned on the jets and blazed across the entire field and right past Alex Smith for six points the other way.
This is surely one highlight the Redskins organization is ready to forget, while it's also one that Reid and Texans fans alike should never live down.
