Metal Metropolis Underground presents “Performs of the Yr” that includes the tops runs, catches, hits and the whole lot else in-between from the Pittsburgh Steelers 2019 season.
There weren’t lots of spotlight moments for the Pittsburgh Steelers of their Week 11 loss to the Cleveland Browns on Thursday Evening Soccer.
The offense had lots of stalls, a poor snap precipitated a missed discipline purpose by Chris Boswell, and two receivers (JuJu Smith-Schuster and Diontae Spencer) needed to be helped off of the sector after Browns defenders went helmet-to-helmet towards them.
One vibrant spot was the play of T.J. Watt, who completed the 12 months a finalist for the NFL Defensive Participant of the Yr.
Getting into the sport, Watt had 9.5 sacks… and towards the Browns, Watt wouldn’t be denied in getting Baker Mayfield to the turf.
After pressuring all evening, Watt lastly hit paydirt at 9:44 within the third quarter. Watt rapidly received off the block and zeroed in on Mayfield, who was partially turned away from that edge and in search of a goal to throw to.
With that sack, Watt has registered no less than 0.5 sacks in seven consecutive video games (per Michael Bertsch of Steelers.com), which was the longest lively streak within the NFL. Watt can also be the primary Steelers participant with no less than 0.5 sacks in seven consecutive video games since LaMarr Woodley logged ten such video games (franchise file).
With 10.5 sacks in 2019, Watt eclipsed the ten-sack mark for the second time in his three-year profession within the league and have become the primary Steelers participant with consecutive seasons with a minimal of 10.Zero sacks since James Harrison and Woodley.
Watt would end the season with 14.5 sacks, his streak snapped at 9 consecutive video games, towards the Cardinals: the one recreation the rest of the season wherein Watt wouldn’t have no less than a half sack in (5 of the ultimate 6 video games).
