Four tackles for a loss.

Three sacks.

Five quarterback hits.

One pass deflection.

Sunday's win 27-13 victory at Jacksonville saw J.J. Watt fill up the stat sheet once again.

"Just checking, brother," Watt said. "Those suckers are hard to get."

He now has 14.5 sacks on the season, and 51 in his career.
