The 2014 NFL season has so far been the season of Watt as Houston Texans Defensive End J.J Watt has stormed through the NFL.

The Texans became a 3-3 team last night following a 33-28 defeat to the Indianapolis Colts but the one positive for the team was their superstar Defensive End.

Texans superstars performs 'Nae Nae' celebration after TD return

Watt had a phenomenal game against the Colts hitting two sacks, seven tackles, three passes defended and a fumble recovery taken in for a touchdown.

Watt has now scored two defensive touchdowns so far this season and that is actually more than 28 of the NFL's teams.

So in the wake of a big performance from Watt, a currently injured NFL rookie has come out and claimed that the Texans star isn't doing anything he didn't do while at college.

That NFL rookie however, just happens to be Watt's team-mate with the Texans and the first overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft Jadeveon Clowney.

Clowney said: "I just tell him, boy, I remember I used to do that in college,"

When asked how Watt responded, Clowney said "He be like, 'Yeah, I know. Need to do that on the next level.'"

Clowney was also speaking about his eventual return to the field after being ruled out of Thursday's game with the Colts, Coach Bill O'Brien claimed he will be back shortly after that game.

Clowney just wants to return to playing and in his own words "I want to hit somebody."

His return will surely make the Texans defence a much more imposing prospect for opposing teams if he can hit the heights he did whilst playing for South Carolina.

Clowney just what the Texans need?

Clowney's return will make the Texans defence which got a slow start against Indianapolis a lot stronger.

For the final three quarters of the game, the Texans defence only allowed nine points and if they had of been that fierce from the start, they likely would have won the game.

But the question continues, despite Clowney's return no doubt being a great thing for the Texans will their offensive struggles continue to weigh them down?

They had brief hope of defeating the Colts last night but Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick fumbled the ball just after the two minute warning to hand the win to Indianapolis.

Perhaps more offensive weaponry is what is needed in Houston but with their defence surely about to become even more formidable they still look a very dangerous team.
