J.J. Watt isn’t just the Houston Texans’ best defensive player. He’s also their best offensive player.
During the third quarter of Sunday’s game against the Bills, Watt did another Watt thing, picking off a pass thrown by E.J. Manuel and taking it 80 yards for the touchdown.
Watt’s athletic pick-six gave the Texans a 13-10 lead, and it also put him in elite company.

Watt showed off his offensive prowess in Week 2, as he caught a short touchdown pass on a goal-line play while lining up as a tight end against the Oakland Raiders, so we’d say he’s worth every bit of his recently signed six-year, $100 million contract extension.
The 25-year-old also has more touchdowns than both running back Arian Foster and wide receiver Andre Johnson this season. Just throwing that out there.
