01:35 PM ET 11.07 | J.J. Watt of the Houston Texans is an early favorite for Defensive Player of the Year in the NFL this season. What has made the defensive end such a threat is his ability to line up in various spots and match up with different players. In a radio interview on WSCR in Chicago, Watt said he enjoys "the opportunity to go up against as many guys as possible, and hopefully beat as many guys as possible because it's kind of like one of those feather-in-your-cap-type deals." Along with his 10.5 sacks, Watt has 10 passes defended, using his size and timing to swat balls at the line of scrimmage. Watt said he has been working on jumping passing lanes since college and knows early on during a passing play if going for the swat is the right move.

He blocks more than Mutombo did.
He should do the "no no" gesture to QBs.

Sounds like Anthony Bourdain.

He's one of the biggest reasons why no one in Houston is missing Mario Williams these days. And why the Texans felt they could let him go.

The Texans will barely pass and make Tillman not a huge factor. Whereas the turnstile won't stop Watt from hitting Cutler.

Watt will blow by Webb all day. The Bears are really going to need those defensive scores if they want to beat Houston, which could be tough if Tillman doesn't play because of his wife. Should be a fun game to watch.

The way he slaps passes down, you'd think he was talking to Dez Bryant's mother
