J.J. Watt is first-ever unanimous NFL Defensive Player of the Year
J.J. Watt was a unanimous selection for 2014 Defensive Player of the Year on Saturday night.
Watt was a unanimous choice, the first person to ever sweep the vote for this particular defensive award. Tom Brady was also a unanimous selection at one point, albeit for the MVP in 2007.
Watt finished the season with 20.5 sacks, an interception (which he returned 80 yards for a touchdown), five fumble recoveries (and a recovered fumble for a touchdown), a safety and 78 total tackles.
Oh yeah, he also caught three passes for four yards and three touchdowns. Watt was a freak and a beast on the defensive side of things week in and week out and was the only guy who deserved to win the award.
