The Texans have won their first two games of the season. In Week Two, defensive end J.J. Watt accomplished something in 82 games that only one person has ever done quicker.
Via the NFL, Watt became the second-fastest player to get to 75 career sacks. That’s three games before Hall of Famer Bruce Smith, who needed 85 games to get there. Hall of Famer Reggie White accomplished the feat in an uncanny 62 games.
With 1.5 sacks on Sunday, Watt has 76.0 total sacks. He also recovered a fumble in the team’s win over the Chiefs, who swept the Texans last year with wins in Week One and in the wild-card round olf the playoffs.
Watt also is a three-time NFL defensive player of the year in only five seasons. Chances are he’ll eventually join Smith and White in Canton.
