T.J. Watt is having another superb season. After a huge game in Cincinnati in which he had two sacks and a forced fumble, the former Defensive Player of the Year is back on top of the league in sacks.
Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin didn’t mince words when talking about his star edge rusher this week.
“Let’s be honest, T.J. Watt is the best defensive player on the planet right now,” Tomlin said.

Watt currently sits at 13.5 sacks to lead the NFL. He needs 8.5 to tie the single-season record, which he and Michael Strahan currently hold, and nine to break the record all together.
