J.J. Watt Mocks Titans Quarterback With Selfie Celebration

The NFL is no place for selfies, according to Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Zach Mettenberger apparently didn't get that memo and posted a selfie on his Twitter account before his first career start against the Texans on Sunday (along with a few others earlier in the week on Instagram). After sacking the rookie QB in the fourth quarter (his second sack of the game), Watt mocked him with a selfie celebration.

After Houston's 30-16 win, Watt explained his celebration and welcomed Mettenberger to the NFL.

"It's just kind of a reminder, this is the National Football League, not high school. Welcome to the show," Watt said, via ESPN.com. "I just, I take my job very seriously. If I was a rookie quarterback being named the starter for the first time in the league, I feel like I'd be a little bit more focused than that."
