TJ Watt becomes 3rd fastest NFL player to record incredible defensive stat
TJ Watt, in just his 84th career game in the NFL, became the 3rd fastest player to ever reach 75 sacks across a career Sunday afternoon against the Carolina Panthers.
Watt is up to 28 tackles, 3.5 sacks and 5 tackles for loss this season. The Steelers lead Carolina 21-10 in the 2nd half.
In his 84th career game, T.J. Watt has become the 3rd-fastest player to reach 75.0 career sacks.
Only HOF Reggie White (65) and his older brother J.J. Watt (82) have accomplished the feat in fewer games since 1982 when sacks were first officially tracked. @steelers #HereWeGo

Watt has been in the league since 2017 after a strong career at Wisconsin where he was named first-team All-American. He’s been one of the better defenders in the league since.
In case those 75 sacks didn’t speak that into existence already.
