J.J. Watt: 'I've eaten burritos bigger than' Ray Rice

The Baltimore Ravens aren't laughing about Sunday's 43-13 loss to the Houston Texans, but we can.

At least at a snippet of audio pulled from the wreckage of that Baltimore defeat.

NFL Films wired Texans defensive end J.J. Watt for "Sound FX," which previewed on ESPN during "Monday Night Football" and offered this gem:

Watt telling tiny Ravens running back Ray Rice, "I've eaten burritos bigger than you."

We don't doubt a word of it.

The 5-foot-9 Rice never got cooking against Houston, running for an uncharacteristic 45 yards.

Watt didn't have much trouble digesting Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, either. The Texans' terror has destroyed passers all season and leads the NFL with 9.5 sacks and 10 deflected passes.

Rice was lucky to get out of that place alive.
