J.J. Watt has had a busy few days leading up to the Houston Texans debut.

After Hurricane Harvey ravaged Houston and the surrounding area, Watt started a fundraiser that quickly went viral and has now raised over $30 million for relief efforts for the city.

Everyone knew that it would be an emotional day when the Texans made their first home start, and when Watt took to the field on Sunday, the mood was absolutely electric. When the Texans made their entrance, Watt took the field last, proudly waving the state flag of Texas to a raucous crowd.

The Texans also held a moment of silence prior to kickoff for those affected by the storm.

Watt is still raising money for the relief effort — those interested in donate can learn more here.
