T.J. Watt, Bud Dupree Reach Milestone No Steelers OLB Duo Has In A Decade

It should not be understated how significant is the growth, development, and health of the pair of T.J. Watt and Bud Dupree this season to the Pittsburgh Steelers’ success. Without their persistent, consistent pressure on opposing quarterbacks, not to mention their stout run defense, this is a sub-.500 team, of that I have no doubt.

What the two of them have been doing to offensive tackles this year is just rude. They are very much in the conversation as the best edge rush tandem in the NFL, with both in the top 15 in the league in sacks, Watt himself in the top five, and the first in the AFC.
