World Cup Champion @CarliLloyd vs. 325lb @Wilfork75. Field Goal Contest?! Yup. It happened. #HardKnocks http://t.co/tWcUh5M5SK

The Houston Texans recently had a kicking contest during training camp, but it was no ordinary competition.

Houston nose tackle Vince Wilfork and United States women's national soccer team star Carli Lloyd went head-to-head in a mini field-goal kicking contest. The 2015 World Cup champion nailed her kick with ease, and the 325-pound lineman followed by coming through in the clutch.

Considering Lloyd is best known for her incredible range, this was pretty much a chip shot for the winner of the 2015 World Cup Golden Ball.

This competition should make the Texans feel good, as they now know they have a capable kicker if something happens to Randy Bullock during a game.

The field-goal contest will air during HBO's Hard Knocks at 10 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
