T.J. Watt Outshines Big Brother J.J. Watt in NFL Debut, Recording Two Sacks and an INT (Video)
There were two Watt brothers playing defense in the NFL on Sunday. One of them played like a superstar. The other looked like a chump against one of the league’s saddest franchises.
The latter was Houston Texans superstar J.J. Watt, who had an uncharacteristically ineffective game, dislocating his finger and recording just a single tackle against the Sacksonville Jaguars. The former was Watt’s little brother T.J. Watt.
The 30th overall draft pick in 2017, T.J. Watt made his NFL debut with the Steelers against the Browns on Sunday, and what a debut it was. The rookie linebacker actually did something his All-Pro brother has never done: record two sacks and an interception in the same game.
Of course, the interception came on an absolutely horrendous throw from Browns QB DeShone Kizer, but it still took a leap and some soft hands to bring it in:

Chargers fullback Derek Watt—who stubbornly refuses to use the initials D.J., and will make his season debut on Monday night—was very proud of his little bro:

Congrats to T.J. Watt. Now let’s see what he can do against a team that isn’t the Browns.
