In fact, only one other defender has ever won three DPOY awards, Giants great Lawrence Taylor, but he did so over the course of a longer six-year period ('81, '82, '86). Watt, who is still only 26 years old, has averaged 14.9 sacks per year in his first five seasons, bringing his career...

Recently there's been talk of Watt-fatigue that may harm his chances to win a third DPOY award. There has also been some discussion about the rise of the...

The Kansas City Chiefs experienced it firsthand in Week 1 when Watt totaled nine tackles, including six for losses to go with two sacks and three quarterback hits.
