TJ Watt

You may know of T.J. Watt as J.J. Watt’s little brother, but he sent a strong message in Friday’s preseason opener that he has superstar potential in his own right. Four defensive plays into the game, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ rookie had two sacks.

On the first defensive drive of the game, Watt broke into the backfield and sacked Giants quarterback Josh Johnson on third down, forcing a punt.

You can really see the family resemblance.

If you know how J.J. Watt always keeps active in his community, it shouldn’t surprise you he’s also a good older brother. J.J. was keeping tabs on his baby bro’s first professional game and loved what he saw.

But T.J. had more left in him. Two minutes later, he completely blew up a play-action call and threw Johnson to the turf.

The Steelers face the Texans on Christmas. J.J. hopes to play some offense in that game, so mark your calendars now.
