Another was a comment highlighting a short video clip of the hit that T.J. Watt was fined for, one in which Watt dove at Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan and made contact in his lower leg. Watt appeared to make an attempt to lift his arms up and roll out of the way, and the contact appeared light.

A few minutes later, Watt declined to speak to reporters - but his brother provided plenty of reaction for the fine on social media. Pittsburgh has been instructed to take the money out of Watt's paycheck if he does not intend to appeal, Schefter added.

National Football League fined its co-sack leader, TJ Watt, $20,054 for "forcibly hitting in the knee area or below" Falcons' QB Matt Ryan, per source. "I'm not a dirty player".

"It was pretty cool to see T.J. Watt have three sacks on Sunday, and meet him today", said Barrett.

"I understand the rules".

The Steelers now lead the entire NFL in sacks with 19.0 sacks due, in no small part, to the excellent pass rushing of T.J., who is tied with J.J. and Cincinnati Bengals veteran Geno Atkins for most sacks in the league with 6.0.

He also got to meet his favorite player, T.J. Watt, who put on quite a show last week with three sacks against the Falcons.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was critical of the officiating in the game, saying, "Man, these penalties are costing people games and jobs. But that's all I'm gonna say on it".
