Texans DE J.J. Watt Named AFC Defensive Player of the Week
 
HOUSTON – The NFL named Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt the AFC Defensive Player of the Week following his performance against the New York Jets on Sunday. Watt finished the game with a team-high eight solo tackles, including five for loss, 2.0 sacks and five quarterback hits in Houston’s 24-17 victory. Watt currently leads the NFL in sacks (11.5), tackles for loss (21) and quarterback hits (33) this season.
 
Watt has the second-most career sacks in a player’s first five seasons in NFL history with 68.5 since 2011. This is his fourth straight season with 10.0-or-more sacks, which is the longest active streak in the NFL. Watt owns a current four-game sack streak dating back to Week 7, which is tied for the longest active streak in the NFL and tied for the sixth-longest in Texans history. With a sack in his next game, Watt would post his fifth career five-game sack streak.
 
Sunday was Watt’s fourth multi-sack game (1.5 or more) this season, which leads the NFL, and 21st of his career. Watt also has an NFL-best 192 quarterback hits and 124 tackles for loss since entering the NFL in 2011. This is also his fourth straight season with 30-or-more quarterback hits (2012-15) and his last four seasons are currently the top four single-season quarterback hit totals since 2006.  
 
This is the fifth Player of the Week award for Watt in his career, with the last one coming in Week 11 in 2014, and the 34th time a Houston Texan has been named Player of the Week in franchise history.
