The New England Patriots beat the Houston Texans in a close game. The Texans were winning by 10 points at the half but the Patriots came back to win the game, and the Texans were stunned by the adjustments the Patriots made. Defensive end Antonio Smith was one of the more vocal about it.
“Either teams are spying on us or scouting us,” Smith said, via ESPN. ”I’m very suspicious. I just think it will be a big coincidence if that just happened by chance. I don’t know for sure, but I just know it was something that we practiced this week.”
Smith declined to elaborate when asked about it and wouldn’t provide a specific example.
“I can’t tell you an example because it’s G15 classified,” Smith said. “It’s a defensive thing that we might continue to use. …
“When you watch film of the team do something a certain way all the time no matter what team they play — it’s been 12 games played and they always did it — and then all of a sudden it’s changed? It was pretty clever and pretty suspicious.”
