There’s always something a little extra special when players get to showcase their talents under the Sunday Night Football lights, and with the whole football world watching it’s a coveted game slot each and every week.

For Houston Texans defensive back Bradley Roby, the Texans’ Sunday night spot against the New England Patriots was even more memorable. After losing his grandfather and attending the funeral on Saturday, Roby came into the game and dominated Tom Brady and the Pats.

He finished the game with a sack, and interception, four tackles, and a tackle for loss. He also had another interception called back due to a flag.

The performance was extra special after making a promise to his late grandfather.



Make some plays, he did.

Roby noticeably had an extra pep in his step, and now we know why. It’s hard to cheer against  game like that.
