If the Houston Texans need an emergency field kicker at any point this season, Vince Wilfork is ready.

At the suggestion of head coach Bill O'Brien, Wilfork took on a U.S. soccer star Carli Lloyd in a kicking competition during practice last week.

Lloyd who scored a hat trick to lead the U.S. to victory in the Women's World Cup final in July, nailed her attempt with ease. Then, the 6-foot-2, 325-pound Wilfork, who appeared slightly taken aback when Lloyd connected on her attempt, gave it shot.
