When Houston Texans star J.J. Watt took the field in pregame introductions on Sunday, he came out waiving the Texas flag and to a thunderous ovation.

Another angle shows even better just how loud the Houston fans were.

Watt always was going to get a huge cheer in Week 1. He’s one of the league’s most popular players and is returning after missing most of 2016 with an injury.

But his efforts to help Texas recover from Hurricane Harvey have only served to raise his popularity. The great ovation in Houston was certainly well deserved.
