It is no surprise that after a very impressive 2019 season that T.J. Watt continues to dominate in the early parts of 2020.

In the Pittsburgh Steelers week two victory over the Denver Broncos, Watt managed to get 2.5 sacks, four quarterback hits, as well as four tackles.

His great performance didn’t go unnoticed either, as he was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 2!

His 2.5 sacks this past Sunday bring his sack total at Heinz Field to 25 over his first 25 games. That is more than any player has had in their first 25 career home games in NFL History!

Watt’s performance in week two came as no surprise, and there are likely many more accolades like this to come for the 4th year pro!
