Over the past 16 weeks we’ve watched linebacker T.J. Watt rip other teams apart. Against the Colts Watt had a forced fumble and 2 sacks which extended the Steelers NFL sack record to 72 straight games.
Watt leads the league with 15 sacks and Mike Tomlin said that Watt’s skills are out of this world good.
Watt leads the league in 3 different categories, sacks, tackles for loss, and quarterback hits. Watt is the only player in Steelers history to have multiple seasons with over 14 sacks recorded with 15 this season. Watt tied Mike Merriweather for second on the Steelers single season sack list.
Only James Harrison has more with 16 sacks in 2008. Watt has a chance to pass that Sunday against the Browns and as the season nears the end. Watt is one of the front
runners for defensive player of the year
Last regular season game this Sunday at 1, Tomlin did say he will be resting Ben Roethlisberger. So we’ll get a Mason Rudolph and Myles Garret part 2 hopefully without the brawl this time.
Tomlin mentioned they might rest other starters as well but didn’t give out specific names yet other than Ben
