Clinton Portis's downfield block
This block by Clinton Portis during the 62-yard Fred Davis catch-and-run was one of the early highlights of the Redskins' loss to the Texans, even though it would have been a lot more highlighty had the Redskins won.
Portis's celebration over this block was far more enthusiastic than his celebration over either of his touchdowns, and fans happily ooooohed and ahhhhhhed and crushed small mammals with their bare hands every time the block was replayed on the HD big screens.
It's impossible not to love the effort, and so Portis was inevitably asked about the play after the game. While he was wearing sunglasses and a backpack, naturally.
"Just hustling, trying to be a part of the game," he said. "I seen the play developing and I had a flat route, and I thought [that] Fred had a wheel route. And when I looked up I seen him running down field and I was like, 'I got to get down here, I think this play could be a big play.' And Fred was [asking] where did I come from. It was just hustling, trying to get [him] in the end zone, because I know points are hard to come by. So if you can spring anybody to get a touchdown, I'm trying."
His reward was two straight carries from the one-yard line, the second of which ended with him in the end zone, pictured here.
"Just a great play, hustling," Fred Davis said on Comcast SportsNet. "That's the type of stuff you need."
