J.J. Watt Leads The Houston Texans With Intensity, Leadership, And Pure Skill

The Houston Texans have long seen their offense strike when the iron is hot and consistently run up the score, but they’ve needed the defense to keep the lead. With some players leaving and others are not living up to the hype, J.J. Watt brings the whole package to a team that is getting better every season.
