The NFL has done a great job of turning their awards ceremony into a fun night.
Many of the NFL stars get together and show support to the league and the best players in it.
One of the top moments of NFL Honors last night was by a now-retired player, J.J. Watt.
Watt attended the event and took a picture that showed him looking like anything but a former NFL star.

This was probably the last time many NFL fans will see Watt until five years from now when he is up for Hall of Fame induction.
After an incredible 12-year career, Watt decided it was time to hang up the cleats.
He will finish with 114.5 career sacks (24th all-time) to go along with three defensive player of the year awards.
Also, Watt was named to five all-pro teams.
He left a lasting impact on the Houston Texans organization that will be felt forever.
He has the highest approximate value of any Texan ever at 122.
Even though Watt deserves to be celebrated for his career, there were plenty more players who received honors last night.
The NFL MVP award was given to Patrick Mahomes for the second time in his career.
Also, the defensive player of the year that Watt won so often was given to Nick Bosa of the San Francisco 49ers.
But one award that means a ton to all the NFL players is the Walter Payton Man of the Year award.
Watt won this prestigious honor back in 2017 for his help during Hurricane Harvey which devastated Houston.
Last night, Watt and many others welcome Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott to the fraternity.
Prescott won the award for his amazing work with his Faith Fight Finish foundation.
He has been very open about mental health and suicide prevention over the years and has influenced many people.
All in all, the NFL Honors has become a great night for the league and its many deserving players.NEXT: Ohio State Celebrates 2 NFL Award-Winning Alumni
