JJ Wattthe three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, faced a health issue last week when his heart went into atrial fibrillation, which causes an irregular and often very fast heartbeat, according to Cleveland Clinic. The 33 year old tweeted that doctors applied electric shocks to his heart to return it to its normal rhythm on Thursday. Three days later, he took the field for his 138th consecutive NFL game.

During the post-match press conference, Watt reflected on his tough week. “Obviously, it’s been a very emotional week for my family, for my wife, for me,” he said, apparently fighting back tears. “So, I’m very happy to get a win today. Obviously I’ve had a lot of emotions, but I’ve learned to appreciate the little things even more, so it’s good to have a win today.”

Watt has more than his legendary career to consider. He and his wife, a professional soccer player.
