WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. -- J.J. Watt found out about his brother T.J. Watt's big game from an unlikely source.

I came out of my meeting and I actually had a text on my phoneand it said, I see your little bro out there ballin, hope all is well, J.J. Watt said.

And I looked and it was from Kendrick Lamar.

The Pittsburgh Steelers rookie outside linebacker had two sacks in his first four defensive plays Friday against against the New York Giants. J.J. Watt said after he saw the text, he googled his brother to see what he had done.

I just thought that was the craziest thing in the world to see one of the best rappers in the world, possibly the best rapper in the world, text me about my little brother, Watt said. But it was just so cool. It was such an awesome moment to see [T.J.] go out there and do what he does. Hes a great football player. Im very excited to watch him play. Hes worked so hard. Hes overcome a lot in his career."

Watt added with a laugh: Two sacks in four plays made me question myself, because I played four plays the other day. So [I am] a little disappointed.
