Today, the Houston Texans players voted on multiple awards including MVP, The Ed Block Courage Award,( Matt Schaub) , Rookie of the Year (Ben Jones) and the Mark Bruener award ( Chris Myers).
J.J. Watt currently leads to AFC and is tied in the NFL with the most sacks, as well as being tied for 9th in passes defended; the only defensive linemen in the top 40. He also happens to lead the team in tackles (74 – 33 for loss) and quarterback hits (38).While Watt received the team MVP, he is also in line to receive the NFL MVP as well. While other players are surely deserving, Watt has exemplified how talented and important he is to his team.
While other players are surely deserving, Watt is the most deserving made evidence by his play. Evidence is not always enough though, just look at some of the most historic court cases in history. In order to cement his spot, Watt needs to either tie or break the sack record of 22.5. With two games left, 3 sacks are needed to tie, 3.5 win MVP and a new record.
