PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Beware of opposing midfielders.
Although Monday night could be Ben Roethlisberger’s last home game at home, TJ Watt had no trouble capturing attention on the defensive side of the ball.
In the Steelers’ week 17 game against the Browns, Watt knocked Baker Mayfield four times and put Watt on the threshold of history.
Four sacks give him 21.5 bags this season, which is 1.5 times breaking the NFL’s one-season record of 22.5, set by Michael Strahan in 2001.
Watt also scored five tackles, three of which were losses, against the Browns in week 17.
For the third time this season, Watt has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Week.
The Steelers will meet the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday at 1:00pm in the season finale with a slim chance that post-season is still alive.
