JJ Watt is the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year. The Houston Texans defensive end is 6-foot-5, 298 pounds, and a monster on the field. One of Watt’s specialties is his ability to bat passes. He was credited with 16 passes defended last season, which is an absurd amount for a defensive lineman. But as big and awesome as Watt is on the gridiron, he looks like a dwarf standing next to former Houston Rockets center Yao Ming. The two Houston icons had lunch together Tuesday, according to Watt, who shared the above photo of them on Twitter. Sure, we all knew that Yao, who is 7-foot-6 is gigantic, but it’s still pretty incredible to see someone make Watt look tiny. Very few people can do that.
