JJ Watt was such a dominant force blocking passes during the Texans’ 23-17 win over the Jets on Monday night, Rex Ryan joked that he should be playing for the Knicks.

“That JJ Watt’s the real deal,” Ryan said in his postgame press conference. “I think the Knicks should pick him up too with all the shot-blocking he did. It’s not like he doesn’t do it to everybody, but he certainly did it tonight. He’s an excellent football player.”

Watt unofficially had six tackles, a sack, and three batted passes in the game — including two in the red zone that could have saved touchdowns, and one that resulted in an interception. I’m not saying we should put the second-year defensive end in the Hall of Fame already the way Jon Gruden was talking during “Monday Night Football,” but Watt has been an animal.

Watt already has 8.5 sacks and 26 tackles on the season, which is an absurd amount for a defensive end. The Texans will need him to continue his beastmode ways throughout the season with Brian Cushing out.
