Texans J.J. Watt lines up as a wildcat quarterback

Watt runs the ball in the red-zone with Vince Wilfork as his lead blocker.

A weird, terrible playoff game for the Houston Texans got even weirder as the majority of the Texans offensive starters exited the field just inside the red-zone. The offensive players were replaced by a slue of big bodies including nose guard Vince Wilfork and defensive end J.J. Watt.

Watt playing offense isn't anything new. The defensive lineman caught three touchdown passes in 2014. This time though Watt was lined up at quarterback with Wilfork leading the way as blocker.

Watt took the snap and couldn't find any running room against the Chiefs defensive line.

At this point, I would be happy with Watt running the offense for the rest of the game. The Texans currently trail 13-0 and Houston's quarterback Brian Hoyer has turned the ball over four times in the first half.

What is the worse that could happen? At least Watt won't throw an interception, right?
