A play Kyle Van Noy made Thursday night evoked memories from his high school days.
“Jaime [Collins] knocked the ball out like he usually does,” Van Noy told reporters. “A bunch of people wanted the ball and people missed. It squirted right to me. I picked it up and tried to score, looked like I was playing high school receiver again.”
Van Noy was originally ruled short on his dive toward the end zone, but upon further review, referees determined that he did, in fact, break the plane. Van Noy said he knew he was in, and his main focus was holding onto the ball so he didn’t have to face the wrath of head coach Bill Belichick.
