Watt: Excited about chance to face Brady

By ESPNBoston.com

J.J. Watt is a name you're going to hear a lot over the next seven days. The Texans' defensive lineman has 15 1/2 sacks and 15 passes defended and is a legitimate candidate for NFL MVP honors.

He was interviewed on the "Mike and Mike" show on ESPN Radio show on Tuesday morning (listen to it HERE) and discussed his propensity to bat down balls at the line of scrimmage, his aggressiveness at getting to the quarterback and his upcoming Monday night matchup against Tom Brady.

"Tom Brady is one of the best in the game. He's a great player, we've seen a lot of great players," Watt said. "I'm excited about the opportunity. He stays in the pocket a little bit more. This week we played Jake Locker, who obviously can get out of the pocket. I'm excited about the opportunity. Anytime you get a chance to go against one of the greatest you have to love and cherish it. Monday night, for everybody to see our team and see what we're all about, I'm really excited about that."
