Heyward had two tackles (both solo) for two sacks during Sunday's 16-13 win over Cincinnati.
Heyward finishes up his ninth season with 51 tackles including eight sacks and one fumble recovery in 16 games. He has two years remaining on his current contract and does not appear to be slowing down. The 29 year old has recorded 20 sacks in his past 31 games to match a much younger T.J. Watt's (24 years old) production over that same span.
Heyward totaled six tackles (four solo) during Sunday's 24-21 loss to Oakland.
Although he failed to record a sack, Heyward was able to log his highest tackle total since Week 1. He is currently third on the team in sacks with six, which leaves him well off a 2017 pace that resulted in a career-high 12 sacks. Heyward had one tackle for a sack the last time he faced Week 15 opponent New England in 2017.
Heyward had five tackles (four solo) including a sack during their 20-16 win against Jacksonville.
Heyward recorded a sack in consecutive games for the first time this season to give him 5.5 sacks. He also found himself in the right place at the right time when T.J. Watt sacked Jacksonville quarterback Blake Bortles and forced a fumble that was recovered by Heyward on the final play of the game to preserve the win. Pittsburgh will look to extend their six-game winning streak in Week 11 against Denver.
Heyward totaled three tackles (two solo) including two sacks during Thursday's 52-21 win over Carolina.
The defense sacked Cam Newton five times and applied pressure all game for widest margin of victory this season. Heyward now has 4.5 sacks this season. He'll look to add to that total in Week 11 against the Jaguars.
Heyward totaled three tackles (two solo) including one and a half sacks during Sunday's 41-17 win over the Falcons.
After notching 12 sacks last season, Heyward had gotten off to a slow start and had not recorded a sack since Week 1 against Cleveland. He'll look to keep the positive momentum going, having recorded four sacks in his last seven games against Week 6 opponent Cincinnati.
