The Texans may have just come out with a little added motivation, as they blew out the Pittsburgh Steelers, 30-6.
Watt starred at Wisconsin for 2 seasons before beginning his NFL career. During his final season in Madison, he recorded 21 tackles for loss and 7 sacks.
Watt played the first 10 seasons of his NFL career in Houston and was drafted by the team in 2011 with the 11th pick. During his time in Houston, he had 101 of his 114.5 career sacks. He was the Defensive Player of the Year 3 times during his time with the Texans (2012, 2014 2015).
He also was 1st team All-Pro 5 times, and 2nd team All-Pro twice.
