J.J. Watt’s first career sack came against New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees back in 2011, and he got to Brees once again on Sunday, making a bit of history in the process.

Sunday against the Saints, the Houston Texans star defensive end sacked Brees two more times to become the second-fastest player in NFL history to record 70 sacks.

The 26-year-old Watt has 70.5 sacks in 75 career games. Per the Texans, only Hall of Famer Reggie White reached the 70-sack plateau faster than Watt.
