Eagles kicker trolls Texans after game-winning field goal

David Kenyon

Apparently, some Houston Texans players were in the holiday spirit when trying to taunt Philadelphia Eagles kicker Jake Elliott. He had the last laugh.

Elliott buried a 35-yard field goal as regulation expired in their Week 16 clash, giving the Eagles a 32-30 victory and keeping them alive in the NFC wild-card race.

And on Monday, he trolled the Texans.

Elliott is listed at 5-foot-9 and 167 pounds, so, yes, he’s objectively a small person compared to the average football player.

But his job description is simple: Split the uprights.

When the Eagles needed him most, Elliott — who had missed an extra point earlier in the game — knocked home the game-winning kick.

Take that, Houston. No Christmas presents for you.
