T.J. Watt didn’t take long to impress as a Steeler.
The former Wisconsin linebacker was all over the field for Pittsburgh against the Browns on Sunday, registering two sacks and an interception of a fellow rookie in Cleveland QB DeShone Kizer.

Watt, who is in his first NFL season, tied with Ryan Shazier for the team lead in tackles with 7. Pittsburgh won the game, 21-18.
Watt’s interception equals his total interception count for his college career. His one pick in college, which he returned 17 yards for a touchdown, came against Purdue in 2016.
The Steelers drafted Watt with the No. 30 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft. Watt flourished in 2016, making 63 tackles, 11.5 sacks and 1 interceptions.
