Watt Brothers Tied for NFL Sack Lead

Both are
University of Wisconsin alums, both play key defensive positions, one for the
Houston Texans and one for the Pittsburgh Steelers and now they have another
thing in common.

They are
tied for the league lead in sacks at six each.

JJ Watt,
defensive end for the Texans and TJ Watt, outside linebacker for the Steelers
have proved to be hard to block for offensive linemen five weeks into the 2018
NFL season.

TJ Watt has
just begun his second season in the NFL while older brother JJ is off to a hot
start after suffering season ending injuries in 2016 and 2017.

The brothers
don’t hold the sole lead in the NFL as Cincinnati Bengals defensive lineman
Geno Atkins also has six sacks.

The Watts
will have a chance to add to their sack totals on Sunday as TJ’s Steelers face
the Bengals and JJ’s Texans take on the Buffalo Bills.
