The end of Jadeveon Clowney’s pick-six Sunday may have looked familiar to Patriots fans.
After returning his second-quarter interception of Tom Brady for a touchdown, the Houston Texans defensive end made it clear to his teammates he needed room — for he had a specific celebration in mind for his first career touchdown. In front of the Patriots home crowd, Clowney wound up and unleashed a trademark Gronk spike.
Whether the dramatized spike was intended as a tribute or to troll the Patriots tight end is unclear.

For comparison’s sake, Rob Gronkowski scored his 70th career touchdown earlier in the game and punctuated it with his usual celebration.
