Published

PITTSBURGH — While the Steelers defense joined NFL history with its streak of consecutive games with a sack a couple weeks ago, linebacker TJ Watt’s sack of Philip Rivers early in the first quarter of his team’s game against the Colts gave him an historic achievement all to himself.

Watt became the first player in the illustrious history of the Steelers franchise to record 14 or more sacks in multiple seasons while wearing black and gold. The 26-year-old linebacker continues a season that has him firmly in the discussion to earn his first career Defensive Player of the Year Award.

Watt is also on pace to surpass his previous career high for solo tackles in a season. He entered the game with 40 with 50 being his best total from the 2018 season.
