After Texans defensive end J.J. Watt sacked Titans quarterback Zach Mettenberger for the second time on Sunday afternoon, he celebrated by taking a mock selfie of himself.
Watt wasn’t just making a comment on the ubiquity of self-shot photographs. He was mocking Mettenberger for posting pictures of himself last week before and after he trimmed his long hair and mustache, including one posted on Sunday morning before kickoff.
“It’s just kind of a reminder, this is the National Football League, not high school. Welcome to the show,” Watt said, via ESPN.com. “I just, I take my job very seriously. If I was a rookie quarterback being named the starter for the first time in the league, I feel like I’d be a little bit more focused than that. Maybe he’ll learn from it, maybe not. We won the game, so that’s all that matters.”
Watt added a forced fumble and a pass breakup to his two sacks in the 30-16 Houston win, which snapped a three-game losing streak and added to Watt’s case to be named the league’s defensive player of the year for the second time in the last three seasons.
