Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker T.J. Watt was a man amongst boys in the team’s comeback win over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, and is now on the cusp on making franchise history.
Watt is now tied with former Steelers pass rusher James Harrison for the most sacks in a single season in team history with 16.

He has two more sacks than anyone else in the NFL.

Harrison set the record in 15 games during the 2008 season. His outstanding pass rush display earned NFL Defensive Player of the Year honors.
Amazingly, Watt has missed two games, and still has five more to play.
Watt also has two more sacks than anyone else in the NFL to this point.
He has also recorded 47 total tackles, four forced fumbles and a league-leading 16 tackles-for-loss.
