J.J. Watt scores offensive TD at Oakland

J.J. Watt made his presence known as the Texans faced the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

And that was before the defense even took the field.

Watt scored on a one-yard touchdown catch on Houston's opening drive of the game. It was the first touchdown from scrimmage for a defensive player in franchise history.

Watt, lined up as a tight end on the left side, found the endzone following a nine-play, 80-yard drive. The two-time All-Pro defensive end last scored on a 29-yard interception returned for a touchdown against Cincinnati in the AFC Wild Card playoff game on January 7, 2012.

It was a familiar spot for Watt, who played tight end at Pewaukee High School and Central Michigan.
