Multiple reporters saw Houston's J.J. Watt spit on the Patriots' logo at midfield during pregame warmups, and after the game Watt confirmed he did it, and that it's part of his routine.
"I do that every game, home or away. I go out to midfield, I jog out there, I spit a little bit, wipe my feet off and then I go through my stretch," he said. "No drama there. That's 100 percent what I do every game, home or away."
