JJ Watt for the Win but Fall to Jags in Opener
J.J. Watt has done, and is doing, great things for the people in and around Houston that were affected by Hurricane Harvey.
The Texans opened their NFL season Sunday and gave a hero's welcome to number 99 before the game.
After the hurricane hit, JJ made a donation of $100,000 to help those in need and was looking to get a total of $200,000. That total has been surpassed to over $30 million as of this writing according to Sports Illustrated.
Thank you JJ Watt.
To have the Texans open their season in Houston was a much needed distraction for those affected.
Unfortunately, the Texans lost to division foe Jacksonville Jaguars 29-7.
The Jaguars sacked Texans quarterbacks Tom Savage and rookie DeShaun Watson a combined 10 times and forced 4 turnovers. Jaguars rookie running back, Leonard Fournette, rushed for 100 yards and a touchdown, too.
Four Texans also had to leave the game after suffering concussions including starting linebacker Brian Cushing and starting tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz.
The Texans have a quick turn around as they travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals Thursday night.
