Houston Texans DE JJ Watt is making noise in the NFL as a crucial member of the #1 ranked defense. With sacks, batted down passes and Due to his penchant for batted balls, JJ Watt is becoming known as JJ Swatt; a fitting name for the long armed playmaker. In addition to batted down passes, Watt has been sacking, tackling and stuffing while putting together a powerful case for an All Pro selection.
Against the Denver Broncos, JJ Watt sought out Peyton Manning to join the list of sacked quarterbacks. Once was not enough, Watt registered 2 ½ sacks on Manning.
JJ Watt’s story is well known. He was not recruited by a college team. In fact, he was delivering pizzas before he transferred to Wisconsin and walked on to the team. A short time later, the Houston Texans drafted Watt in the 1st round to add to their incredible defensive crew.
Last year in the Houston Texans playoff, Watt made huge plays in their first game. This proves that he has what it takes to perform in big games. At only 23 years old, Watt plays like an energetic veteran for whom the sky is the limit.
Against the Titans, look for JJ Watt and the Houston’s defensive line to exploit the shaky offensive line and repeatedly get to Jake Locker.
