FMIA Week 13: ‘Seven Shots’—How T.J. Watt And Steelers Kept Playoff Hopes Alive By Stopping Ravens Late

With the flightiness of NFL greatness (outside of New England), one of the sport’s oxymoronish phrases is “enduring rivalries.” There is only one that truly endures at the highest level of the game, year after year. Ray Lewis comes, Hines Ward goes. Billick/Cowher out, Harbaugh/Tomlin in. It never changes. The games I’ve covered in this rivalry in Pittsburgh—five of them in this century—have the kind of intensity that other great NFL games, even some of the Pats-Colts encounters, don’t seem to have. Former Ravens guard John Urschel put it this way: “When we went to Pittsburgh, you could feel the entire stadium hate you.”

Joe Starkey: T.J. Watt wins games, and the AFC North has gone nuts

The Steelers are 6-2 when T.J. Watt plays most of the game, 0-3-1 when he doesn’t. That’s not an accident. I could easily argue they are 6-0 when they have a healthy Watt, 0-5-1 when they don’t. He didn’t look right coming off injuries in Green Bay or Cincinnati, but I’ll stick with the 6-2 number. It’s telling enough.

T.J. Watt dominates as Steelers win nail-biter vs Ravens in Week 13

The Baltimore Ravens had a chance to pull it off but T.J. Watt stole the show in a Pittsburgh Steelers victory that came down to the wire in Week 13. After two embarrassing performances in which Keith Butler’s defense surrendered back-to-back 41-point games in ugly losses, the Pittsburgh Steelers dialed things up a notch again the Baltimore Ravens in a must-win Week 13 matchup. Mike Tomlin’s team sat on a 5-5-1 record when the day started and he knew how catastrophic a loss would have been to the Steelers playoff hopes.

T.J. Watt: Absolutely embarrassing to play like this

The Steelers finished strong in a Week 11 loss to the Chargers and that created some hope that they would be able to put together a strong performance against the Bengals on Sunday. Cincinnati didn’t take long to dash those hopes. They went up 10-0 in the first quarter and...

T.J. Watt closes in on Myles Garrett with three more sacks vs. Bears

Whether you’re looking at this season or his career, T.J. Watt continues to post ridiculous numbers. With three more sacks Monday night against the Bears, the Steelers’ fifth-year pass-rusher now has 11.5 this season and 61 for his career. Only Cleveland defensive end Myles Garrett has more in 2021 with 12, and he has played two more games than Watt, who missed Week 3 with a groin injury.

4 free agent OLB’s Steelers should sign to replace T.J. Watt

With the Steelers losing a major piece to their pass rush, here are four free-agent edge defenders the team could sign to help their defense. T.J. Watt didn’t suffer a season-ending injury this week against the Lions, and while that is something to be thankful for, he is expected to miss some time as a result. While Taco Charlton will step up as the starter potentially, the Steelers need another capable body to spell their edge position.

Through seven games played so far this year, Watt ranks as the team leader in multiple defensive stats, from sacks (11.5) to quarterback hits (18).
