T.J. Watt just did what only T.J. Watt can do. Here’s why he came down with one of the plays of the year in the Steelers game vs the Bengals.
Down 20-23 in the third quarter with potentially the season on the line, Watt recorded one of the most impressive interceptions you will ever see from an edge defender. Check out this unbelievable play!
T.J. Watt came down with the most unreal, point, blank interception you will ever see. It’s hard to find the words to say about what he’s capable of. Here’s a slow-motion look from the replay angle:
Believe it or not, this is hardly the first time Watt has accomplished such an unlikely feat. In fact, in Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals, the Pittsburgh Steelers star defender and reigning Defensive Payer of the Year came down with a very similar interception at the line of scrimmage.
However, I would argue that this one takes the cake. Fading to his right and seemingly getting blocked out of the play, Watt somehow contorted his body to reach back for the ball and make a miraculous catch. It looked like he was doing his best Rob Gronkowski impression.
We don’t know how many times Watt is going to make plays like this, but there’s no doubt the Steelers star has made his presence felt in limited action during the 2022 season. Let’s hope there’s much more of this to come in the future. As of now, I’m still in awe of the remarkable play Watt was able to make.
