  • A five-time 1st-team All-Pro and five-time Pro Bowl selection, was also named the 2017 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year.

  • In the last 10 years (2012-21), an NFL player has recorded 20.0+ sacks in a season just five times. The Watt brothers – J.J. in 2012 (20.5); 2014 (20.5) and T.J. in 2021 (22.5) – have accounted for three of those campaigns.
  • Led the NFL in sacks with 20.5 in 2012 and 17.5 in 2015 and finished second in the league with 20.5 in 2014 and 16.0 in 2018.
  • Is the only player in NFL history to have multiple seasons of 20.0 or more sacks (2012, '14) and joins Hall of Famer Reggie White as the only players in NFL history to post three or more seasons with at least 17.5 sacks (2012, '14-15).
  • In 135 career games, has totaled 102.0 sacks, 26 forced fumbles, 16 fumble recoveries, 292 QB hits, 177 tackles for loss, 547 tackles (419 solo), two INTs. Also has 6.0 sacks, 10 tackles for loss, 6 passes defensed and an INT in eight playoff contests.

  • His 177 tackles for loss, 292 QB hits, 48 games with multiple tackles for loss and 26 games with 2.0+ sacks lead the NFL since he entered the league in 2011.
  • Since entering the NFL in 2011, only Von Miller (115.5), Chandler Jones (107.5) and Cameron Jordan (107.0) have more sacks than Watt (102.0).

  • Has scored seven TDs in his career (6 regular season, 1 postseason): Three career receiving TDs, three INT return TDs and a fumble return TD.
  • Owns the Texans franchise record for the most career sacks with 101.0.
  • After suffering a would-be season-ending shoulder injury in Week 7 of the 2021 season, returned for the team's first playoff berth since 2015, recording three tackles (one solo) and one tackle for loss in the effort.
  • In 2020 while starting all 16 games for the seventh time in 10 seasons, Watt became just the fourth player in NFL history to record at least 100.0 career sacks in his first 120 games (Reggie White, Bruce Smith, DeMarcus Ware).
  • His six AFC Defensive Player of the Month awards are tied for the most by any defensive player in NFL history (Bruce Smith) while his seven AFC Defensive Player of the Week awards rank second (Aaron Donald - 8) among any active player in the league.
  • Wife, Kealia, plays for the Chicago Red Stars of the NWSL and his brothers, Derek (FB) and T.J. (LB), play for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
