J.J. Watt is now the Texans all-time sack leader (54.0) with his first sack of Sunday's game against Baltimore.
"It is pretty neat to think sometimes that it is still early on in my career and there are some exciting things left that I would like to accomplish," Watt said after the game. "I have to give a lot of credit to my teammates and and my coaches because a lot of those sacks are because of them."
Watt sacked Joe Flacco with for a loss of seven yards with 2:34 left in the fourth quarter. The Texans All-Pro defensive end needed just a a half-sack to surpass Mario Williams, who had 53.0 from 2006-2011.
Watt reached the milestone in just his 63rd game.
"I've had some great memories with this organization already so far," Watt said. "So, I am going to create a lot better, a lot more memories down the road."
Watt is just the second Texan in team history with 50 sacks in his career. He is also the only player besides Jason Taylor to have 10 sacks and 10 passes defensed in two different seasons since 1991.
