Thanksgiving at JJ Watt’s house looks both amazing and dangerous

The Houston Texans defensive end let us in on the rules for his backyard game of ball

In plenty of households in the states, a Thanksgiving game of football in the backyard is as essential as a turkey.

And it seems that in JJ Watt’s house, that’s no different.

The Houston Texans defensive end tweeted some of the rules for backyard footbal in the Watt house, and while he kindly insists that the kids be allowed play, it also seems to be full-contact, once it’s above the knee and below the shoulder.

Check out those fines for dangerous play though. You can’t deny a man a bit of pie on Thanksgiving, not even for maiming an 11-year-old.
