T.J. Watt made history and wanted more.
Youth Ben Roethlisberger Jersey Apparently becoming the first rookie in three decades to record two sacks and one interception in an NFL debut wasn’t enough for Watt, an outside linebacker whose playmaking helped the Pittsburgh Steelers seal a 21-18 win over the Cleveland Browns.
Youth Mike Pouncey Jersey Le’Veon Bell pointed to his lack of playing time in explaining his low production Sunday in the Steelers’ 21-18 win over the Browns.
We felt like we were in the backfield all of the time, but we have to finish plays, Watt said. We had a few sacks left on the table, from my point of view.
Watt is the third player to produce the two-and-one in a debut since stats became official. The others were replacement players Charles Glaze and Tommy Haynes in 1987.
The Steelers poured seven sacks on the Browns for the third consecutive time in FirstEnergy Stadium. Watt, who took ownership of the starting job over James Harrison in training camp, executed an Antonio Brown-esque celebration dance after his second sack of DeShone Kizer, swinging his arms left and right and shaking his hips.
The NFLPA also lacks standing to seek a contingent order preemptively challenging an award that clearly has not yet (and may never) cause it or Ezekiel Elliott any harm, an NFL lawyer wrote in one of the filings, via USA Today Sports. And the NFLPA’s claim is unripe to boot, as even the NFLPA acknowledges that the arbitrator’s forthcoming award could still afford the NFLPA all the relief it seeks.
