The season finale of Hard Knocks featured an intense battle, but not for a starting job or a final roster spot. Instead the war was waged between Vince Wilfork and USWNT star Carli Lloyd for field-goal-kicking supremacy.
Wilfork and Lloyd lined up kicks from 25 and 35 yards before scheduled meetings, and the defensive lineman’s nerves about the health of his hamstrings forced him to call a draw with the Houston Dash midfielder.
As the match played out on HBO, the competitors engaged in some friendly trash talk on Twitter.
Lloyd’s visit also revealed that Texans wide receiver Uzoma Nwachukwu was a bit smitten with the World Cup star, saying goodbye to the team’s guest before bragging to his teammates, “We had eye contact!”
