As Texans fans get pumped up for the big game, Texans defensive standout JJ Watt has picked up a big honor.

The Pro Football Writers of America have named Watt the NFL's defensive MVP. Watt led the league with a franchise record 20-and-a-half sacks. He's also the first player in league history to have at least 15 sacks and 15 passes defended in the same season.

Watt led the Texans with a career-high 81 tackles.
