Brady: Rackets back at practice this week - New England Patriots Blog - ESPN Boston: "FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The last time the Patriots hosted the Houston Texans, they used rackets during practice to simulate the length and height of defensive end J.J. Watt, who has been a force at batting down passes near the line of scrimmage this season.
The results were largely positive, as the Patriots kept Watt without a sack, tackle for loss and a pass defensed in the same game for the first (and only) time this season.
As it turns out, the rackets will be back at practice this week, according to quarterback Tom Brady.
"More of the same," he told reporters during his Wednesday press conference at Gillette Stadium. "It gets frustrating at times, but I think it's a very good thing that coach does, and (he) just subliminally gets it in my head of (Watt's) ability, and their ability as a defense to defend passes at the line of scrimmage. Teams try to do (that) every week, but they get them every week, so that's a big difference."
