Watt now has 10 sacks this season and 17 in his career, the most by a Pittsburgh player in his first two seasons since Keith Willis, who had 15 in 1982 and 1983. Watt will look to add to his total in Week 11 against the Broncos.
Watt had a sack and a forced fumble in Thursday's 52-21 win over the Panthers.
Watt also hit Cam Newton in the end zone to force an errant pass, resulting in a pick-six for fellow linebacker Vince Williams. The 24-year-old's strong sophomore campaign continues, as he has 43 tackles (29 solo), eight sacks and two forced fumbles through the first nine games of the season.
Watt totaled five tackles (four solo) during Sunday's 23-16 win over Baltimore.
Held without a sack for the second time in four games, Watt leads the team with seven sacks this season. He'll face a tough test in Week 10 against Carolina quarterback Cam Newton, who has been sacked just 12 times in eight games this season.
Watt recorded seven tackles (six solo) including a sack during Sunday's 33-18 win over Cleveland.
With four sacks in his last three games, Watt leads the team with seven sacks on the season, exceeding his total of six for all of last season. He is on pace for 16 sacks, and the team is on pace to record 55 sacks this season, second only to Baltimore, who they face in Week 9.
Watt led the defense with eight tackles (six solo) including three sacks during Sunday's 41-17 win over the Falcons.
The three sacks were Watt's first since the three he recorded in Week 1 against Cleveland to give him six on the season. He'll look to add to that total in Week 6 against Cincinnati and Andy Dalton, who has been sacked seven times in his past three games.
