Houston NBC Station Cuts Off End Of Texans Game To Report Result Of Texans Game

Fans in Houston watching last night’s Texans-Bengals game on KPRC missed its wacky final play—one punctuated by local hero J.J. Watt demolishing a poor offensive lineman—because the NBC station cut off the end of the broadcast in a rush to report the game’s not-yet-final score.


As it turns out, the Bengals failed miserably in their last-ditch attempt to save the game on its final play, but it’s fun to imagine how much stupider this would be if Cincinnati had succeeded. KPRC apologized today for the blunder.
