T.J. Watt makes highlight-reel interception of Joe Burrow against Bengals
T.J. Watt and the Pittsburgh Steelers are locked in a tight one with Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals held a slim 27-23 lead in the 4th quarter at Paul Brown Stadium.
Watt is playing in just his 3rd game of the season after suffering a torn pectoral when the 2 AFC North foes met in Week 1. The reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year returned to the lineup against the Saints in Week 10.
On Sunday, Watt added to his personal highlight reel in a big way. With the Bengals at their own 23 with just under 5-and-a-half to go in the 3rd quarter, Burrow’s 1st-down pass appeared at first glance to have been simply batted down by Watt. Upon a closer look, though, he had somehow intercepted the 3nd-year quarterback from LSU.
Watch for yourself as Watt manages to impossibly come up with this pick:

Watt also had an interception in Week 1 against Cincinnati. But that was nowhere near the rabbit he pulled out of his hat for this one.
