J.J. Watt asked if he felt like Santa Claus

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt was asked an interesting question during a press conference after Sunday's win against the Cleveland Browns.

A photojournalist asked Watt, "J.J., did you feel like Santa Claus today?"

Watt responded, "Did I feel like Santa Claus today? Well brother, I don't think I've ever gotten a question like that and I love it. I don't know what Santa Claus feels like but uh... caught me off guard with that one. I love it. I don't think so. No, I don't think I felt like that but now I wonder what it feels like."

On Sunday, Watt caught a 2-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Mallett, dominated on defense and the Houston Texans climbed back to .500 with a 23-7 win over the Browns.

Watt was all over the field. Along with his score, he recorded a strip sack, made five tackles -- three for a loss -- recovered a fumble and hurried Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer into several bad throws. Watt provided more proof he's the NFL's best defensive player.

Mallett threw a pair of TD passes and finished with 211 yards in his first career start. The four-year veteran was promoted during the bye week after the Texans (5-5) benched Ryan Fitzpatrick.

The Texans played without star running back Arian Foster because of a groin injury, but rookie Alfred Blue stepped in and gained 156 yards on a franchise-record 36 carries.

The Browns (6-4) won't spend a second straight week atop the AFC North. They lost for just the second time in seven games, and Watt is the main reason why.
