Texans' J.J. Watt Has Eaten Burritos Bigger Than Ravens' Ray Rice

Allow the visual of a Ray Rice-sized burrito to sink in before making a mad dash to the nearest taqueria. 

Finally, a mic'd up player actually gives us something wholly entertaining when the Houston Texans' J.J. Watt declared that he has eaten burritos bigger than Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice. 

This video (h/t SportsGrid) features a hilarious moment among competitors, during a game the Texans pretty much ran away with early. 

During the eventual loss, Rice gave Watt a shove. That's when the defensive end offered, "You gotta go do that now? Alright. I've eaten burritos bigger than you."

How is that for a mic'd up moment?

It's far better than what we usually get in the form of fist-bumps and lame pep talks . I often wondered why we still had microphones on these athletes.

No longer. 

Rice is what you might call a diminutive football player, coming in at just 5'8". Still, his size would make for quite the massive burrito. 

Oh, J.J. Watt, you beguile me with your fantastic imagery and wonderful words that remind me a Chipotle is only a hop, skip and a car ride away. 

As for Rice, be careful who you shove, because they may just have an insatiable appetite for burritos.
