J.J. Watt strip sack leads to a Texans TD

Earlier this week, J.J. Watt said he wasn't worried about his sack numbers.

He shouldn't be.

The Texans star defensive end now has three sacks in two games after a big play in Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers.

With 10:34 left in the third quarter, the Texans trailed the Panthers 10-3 in Houston. Watt forced a strip sack on rookie quarterback Kyle Allen and recovered it at the Panthers 18-yard line.

With the Texans offense on the field, Deshaun Watson turned to Carlos Hyde for three consecutive plays. After a short pass to Carlos Hyde added a six-yard gain, Hyde ran for 10 yards to get Houston into a first-and-goal situation. Hyde ran for a one-yard gain to the Panthers 1-yard line on the third play of the drive. On the next play, Watson scrambled for a one-yard touchdown run. The Texans tied the game 10-10 after the four-play, 18-yard scoring drive.

Watt's sack was the third strip sack of the day for the Texans defense against the Panthers.
