The sack gave him 20 1/2 this season, making him the first player in NFL history to have two seasons with 20 or more sacks after he also had 20 1/2 when he won Defensive Player of the Year 2012. Watt is looking for become the first defensive player to win NFL Most Valuable Player since Lawrence Taylor did it in 1986. The winner will be announced by The Associated Press on Jan. 31.
Nine of his 53 career sacks are against Indy.
He has five sacks in two games.
Along with scoring his fourth TD this season, he recorded a strip sack, made five tackles - three for a loss - recovered a fumble and hurried Hoyer into several bad throws. Watt was unstoppable, providing more proof he's the NFL's best defensive player.
The Texans defensive end said he noticed that the Titans' Zach Mettenberger posted a few selfies this week, including one a couple hours before kickoff. "I take my job very seriously, and if I was a rookie quarterback and a starter for my first time in the league I'd be a little bit more focused than that," Watt said.
Watt scored his third TD of the season by running a fumble back, had two sacks and three passes defensed. He's one of the game's shining stars and you have to see it to believe it.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the deal had not been signed. Multiple media reports said the agreement was for six years and $100 million, with $51.8 million guaranteed and a $10 million signing bonus. Watt had two years left on his contract that was due to pay him $1.9 million this year and just under $7 million in 2015.
