Getting to Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo hasn’t been easy this season. Through the first two weeks, the offensive line hasn’t allowed a sack on their shiny new toy. But T.J. Watt saw to it that it wasn’t three weeks.

“Thank you, sir,” Mike Tomlin repeated to Watt on the sideline, via NBC “Sunday Night Football” reporter Melissa Stark.
We knew it would be so when Watt told reporters this week that he was determined to end the no-sack streak.
According to WPXI’s Jenna Harner, this was Watt’s first time sacking Jimmy G. He wasn’t able to get to him in their Christmas Eve matchup.
That’s not Watt’s only highlight. No doubt there’ll be plenty. He had a near-fumble recovery called back and also pressured Garoppolo on the throw picked off by Levi Wallace.
