JJ Watt says Kendrick Lamar texted him about his brother's National Football League debut

"I read the text and it said, "I see your little bro out there balling". I was like, wait a second, what did my little brother do?

Rookie outside linebacker T.J Watt had an encouraging debut on Friday night, one that impressed both fans and analysts alike. "So I go on Google, I check it out and it said two sacks in four plays". It was from "possibly the best rapper in the world" Kendrick Lamar.

Watt said he was a little conflicted about what to tweet because his brother plays for another AFC team.

Just minutes after T.J.'s first take down of the game, J.J. Watt took to Twitter to let the youngest of the three Watt brothers know he was watching. It was such an awesome moment to see [T.J.] go out there and do what he does.

"I think just getting out there in general, having a play on (special) teams and then having the sack as I did, it calmed the nerves a little bit", Watt told reporters ( via ESPN ). I'm very excited to watch him play. "I came into this game with a certain amount of confidence because of the work I put in".

I'm not sure what's cooler: Getting two sacks in your National Football League debut or knowing that Kendrick Lamar is impressed by your National Football League debut. Pressure up the middle forced Johnson to step up and Watt got free from left tackle Ereck Flowers for the first sack. "I played four plays the other day".

While Derek will not meet T.J on the same field in 2017, J.J. will get to see his youngest sibling play in person on Christmas Day when the Steelers face off against the Texans in Houston. I hope all is well.' " Watt said. "For now, he holds the bragging rights after one preseason game".

The Texans will host the Jacksonville Jaguars on September 10 in the first game of the 2017 regular season.
