Former Houston Oilers coach Bum Phillips passed away at the age of 90 on Friday, and Texans' defensive end J.J. Watt made sure to find a way to honor the Houston legend. During the fourth quarter of the Texans' loss to Kansas City, Watt made his first sack of the game against Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith and in place of his typical salute celebration he went with a tip of an imaginary cowboy hat, a Phillips trademark. Phillips, father of current Houston defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, was famously known for wearing a cowboy hat on the sidelines while coaching, except when playing in domed stadiums because he said his mother told him it was impolite to wear a hat indoors.
