Steelers OLB T.J. Watt Joins Reggie White in Elite Sack Company

Published

on

PITTSBURGH — Steelers outside linebacker T.J. Watt recorded his 13th sack of the 2021 season against the Baltimore Ravens to put him in elite company in NFL history.


With his 13th this season, Watt became just the second player since sacks became an official statistic in 1982 to record 13 or more sacks in four consecutive season.

Eagles and Packers great Reggie White performed the feat twice.

After recording seven sacks as a rookie in 2017, Watt had 13 sacks in 2018, 14.5 in 2019 and 15 in 2020.

The sack of Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson gave Watt 13.5 in 2021, despite playing in just his 10th game against the Ravens after missing time early this season with an injury.
