Lincoln Financial Field usually isn't a fun place for visiting players, but Houston Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt seemed at home before today's game against the Eagles.

For the group of kids who got to be on the sidelines during warm-ups, Watt provided an awesome memory. He went down the line, playing catch.

Cameras captured footage of Watt's good gesture.

Watt is known for his philanthropy efforts, and today looks like another example of his willingness to give back.

Of course, Watt is also hoping to take something on his trip to Philly: a win that would keep Houston in the running for a top-two seed in the AFC playoffs.

Right now, that mission isn't going too well. Philly leads 7-3 after one quarter of play.

The Eagles are in a must-win situation themselves, as they need to win and have the Minnesota Vikings lose to take a hold of the final wild card spot in the NFC.
