NEW YORK — Pewaukee native and Houston Texans star J.J. Watt took off his cleats and put on his acting shoes Saturday as he hosted Saturday Night Live.

The Wisconsinite had the honor of starting out the show with his very own monologue, and took part in eight sketches throughout the show.

While many of the skits were football related, Watt also took part in sketches having nothing to do with the NFL or football.

What shouldn't come as a surprise, though, is that our favorites moments were mostly football related. So here we go, our top three favorite sketches:

Coming in hot at No. 3: 'Pilot Hunk'

Essentially, the skit is making fun of this season of The Bachelor. Watt dresses up as Peter Weber, the current bachelor, and even pretends to be a pilot. The skit shows Watt meeting several women, who all seem to be a little nuts, and all he has to say is, "I love that."

No matter what the women say, Watt simply says, "I love that."

At No. 2: 'Madden 21'

The four-minute sketch shows Watt supposedly recording voice-overs for the new Madden game. The voice-overs, though, are not what Watt expected. He is forced to read lines such as, "Man, I really suck today," and "Y'all see that sack? I hope our quarterback is OK. This other team is good."

Eventually, Watt gets upset and angry over the lines. He's then shown his avatar for the game and lets just say, it's not an accurate representation of the Wisconsinite we love.

Finally, at No. 1: 'Robbie'

Yes, this one is football-themed. The segment features a football team in the locker room prior to a big playoff game. Some of the players are asking their coach to let one player, Robbie, play. They agree to give up their jerseys and spot on the roster to let their teammate play.

Majority of the team agrees they want Robbie to play, Watt, however, protests. He stands up and tells everyone they're crazy. He reminds the team that Robbie "sucks at football," and says if he plays, then they will lose the game. That's not all he says, but if you want to know the rest, you're just going to have to watch it. Trust us, it's worth it.
