TJ Watt ties Michael Strahan’s NFL single season sack record

There’s a new joint single-season sack chief within the NFL, and his title is T.J. Watt.

The defensive finish tied Michael Strahan’s single-season record of twenty-two.5 sacks Sunday within the Steelers’ Week 18 finale when he sacked Ravens quarterback Tyler Huntley within the second quarter.


Whereas Watt tied the record after the NFL switched to an 18-game season, the four-time Professional Bowler performed in a single much less sport in his than Strahan, who performed in 16 video games in 2001 throughout his record-setting season. Watt performed in 15 video games this season after he missed two video games because of damage.

Watt could have motive to be upset, as an obvious sack within the first quarter was judged to be a fumble on the snap by Huntley, which turned the quarterback right into a runner. That left Watt at a Steelers’ record 21.5, one shy of tying Strahan’s mark, regardless of tallying a pressured fumble moments later.
