Week 14 Patriots vs Texans: Looks Like QB Tom Brady Totally Ignores DL J.J. Watt After the Game

There are some who think that Houston Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt should be considered the league's most valuable player because he's the best defensive player in the league. There's no question that he's great, but he always shrinks when he faces the Patriots.

Watt picked up two tackles on the day as the Patriots completely neutralize him for the upteenth time in his career. Watt has just 15 tackles and 0.5 sacks in four games against the Patriots, which is far below his career statline.

In the postgame scrum, Watt tried to approach quarterback Tom Brady to shake his hand, but Brady has no time for that. He's already thinking about next week's game against the Titans.

You know who deserves actual MVP consideration? Brady. Or tight end Rob Gronkowski. Both of them are actually the difference between a team winning or losing.

And don't worry. This video was actually the moments after Brady and Watt shook hands (look at the position of Big Vince Wilfork in both), so Watt was actually just trying to find someone else to talk with.
