J.J Watt wasn’t going to let a little — okay, a lot — of blood keep him from playing on Sunday afternoon.
The defensive end took a shot to the face during Houston’s matchup against the Seahawks. During the third quarter, Watt took off his helmet to reveal blood streaming down his face, and was forced to leave the field to receive medical attention. The Texans star needed six stitches to close up the gash on his nose, but he stayed in the game, looking more like a hockey player than a football one.
When asked how he suffered the injury, Watt told reporters after the game, “I hit people for a living.” Watt recorded eight tackles and three quarterback hits in Houston’s overtime loss to the Seahawks.
Check out some photos of Watt looking as intimidating as ever in the photos below.

J.J. Watt got a bloody nose on Sunday and the Houston Texans blew a 17 point lead in a loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
It was just a year ago that the Texans were the toast of the NFL, buying varsity jackets and being the last unbeaten team. Now the Texans are 2-2 after consecutive losses to Baltimore and Seattle.
In a lot of ways Watt’s bloody nose is symbolic of the Texans this...
According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the Houston Texans have the ability to get out from underneath the five-year, $66.15 million contract they signed QB Matt Schaub to last season.
Florio’s source informed him that Houston has already paid Schaub $22 million in 2012 and his cap hit becomes “somewhat manageable after the 2013 season.“
The Texans could designate...
I’m sorry Texans fans, but you cannot let a 20-3 lead going into the third quarter. Matt Schaub is a veteran quarterback and he made a stupid rookie mistake that cost him the game yesterday. When getting rushed late in the game Schaub elects to throw a floater in the air to the flats. The […]
Judging from this photo of JJ Watt and his bloody face, the Houston Texans' defensive end was a man on a mission against the Seattle Seahawks.
I think burning a jersey is stupid on all levels, I don’t even care if your QB is Blaine Gabbert, but fan is short for fanatic.

@BlkSportsOnline look how ugly it's getting...
Matt Schaub never struck me as the most beloved player ever so his downfall may not be all that dramatic, but it’s still fun to watch an established starting quarterback get turned on by his team’s fans. With a pick-six in each of his last three games (two of them losses), Schaub has gone from “serviceable starter if you want to contend but not win a Super Bowl” to straight...
In what has become a universal symbol for disgust with a player, Houston fans have now begun to burn the jersey of their starting quarterback, Matt Schaub.
Thanks to our friends at BlackSportsOnline for this one, and with it I can’t help but laugh.
Forget that Schaub has thrown a pick-six in 3 games, in terms of consistency at the QB level Matt Schaub has done little to deserve...
The Houston Texans entered the season with a Super Bowl mentality.
After surrendering a 17-point lead to lose 23-20 to the Seattle Seahawks in overtime, coach Gary Kubiak and his team are trying to keep things in perspective after an unexpected rocky start.
''We're not where we want to be, but there's a long, long way to go,'' Kubiak said Monday. '&...
Houston Texans fans are understandably upset at Matt Schaub.
The quarterback, whose arrival in Houston in 2007 appeared to be the piece the Texans needed to get themselves over the hump, is again failing to fulfill expectations with another middling season. The Texans are 2-2, and Schaub has thrown eight touchdowns against six interceptions, none more egregious than the pick that...
Fan in Houston are not happy with their football team, but they might want to rethink where they are placing the blame.
Prior to the start of the 2013 season the Houston Texans were considered to be among the favorites to make the Super Bowl this season. Four weeks in it looks like they might be lucky to win their division let alone make the Big Game.It all started with...
Matt Schaub went YOLO pass late in the game and Richard Sherman took it to the house. The announcer hit a classic “he’s got followers and not just on twitter!”
HOUSTON (AP) -- Steven Hauschka kicked a 45-yard field goal in overtime to give the Seattle Seahawks a 23-20 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday and the first 4-0 start in franchise history.
Houston (2-2) failed to score on two possessions in overtime. The Seahawks got the win on their second drive in overtime after rallying from a 20-3 deficit.
A key play on the winning drive...
If parking lot incidents in two different cities on Sunday are any indication, stupid behavior does not discriminate between NFL fan bases. Late Sunday, photos and video surfaced of Houston Texans fans burning a Matt Schaub jersey in the Reliant Stadium parking lot. In that incident, at least nobody was harmed. The same can’t be said for this fight outside Qualcomm Stadium in San...
