J.J. Watt will being doing his best on Sunday to inhibit Tom Brady and the Patriots offense, but the two superstars strike a more collaborative tone off the field. Watt has raised more than $37 million in the cause of Hurricane Harvey relief. And a piece of that total has come from both Brady and Bill Belichick.
The Patriots’ coach and quarterback duo donated a combined $150,000 to Watt’s Houston Flood Relief Fund, according to the Texans defensive lineman:
#Texans star JJ Watt said today that Tom Brady donated $100K to his relief fund and Bill Belichick donated $50K. “Incredibly kind gestures.”

Previously, Patriots owner Robert Kraft pledged to match up to $1 million in donations to the Red Cross in response to the hurricane’s impact on Houston.
