The Houston Texans may have traded away their best wide receiver this offseason, but that doesn't leave them without any receiving threats. With Will Fuller, Brandin Cooks and Kenny Stills, they have one of the fastest wide receiver trios in the NFL.

And in a pinch, maybe even J.J. Watt can fill in as their big-bodied red zone threat, just as he did back in 2014.

This wasn't even the first offensive touchdown of Watt's career, but it was certainly the most impressive. He had already scored a 1-yard TD against the Oakland Raiders in Week 2 of the 2014 season, and he went on to score another one (in Week 13) after this.

This score in Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns was ridiculous, though. It wasn't what we usually see when a defensive player scores, where they go uncovered as a result of a slick play-action pass. There was no secret about what Watt was doing, lining up split out wide and running a fade.

And the catch was incredible, as he stretched out perfectly to reel in the pass behind the defender, getting one foot and then a knee down in bounds to secure the score.

Texans fans will hope that Watt will be able to stay healthy for another full season in 2020. He's only played a full 16 games in one of the last four years, but he's also been a first-team All-Pro each of the last five times he played 16.
