T.J. Watt

At the top of the list is without question pass rusher T.J. Watt, who is having another incredible season for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Watt was a first round pick by the Steelers in 2017 and has made the Pro Bowl the past two seasons.

This past year he finished third in voting for Defensive Player of the Year and once again is in the running for the award. He has 12 sacks on the season, with five in the past four games, and is only a .5 sack back of the league lead.

The Buffalo Bills have done a better job of protecting Josh Allen by allowing only three sacks the past three games, compared to 10 sacks in the three games prior to that stretch. However, even without Bud Dupree, who suffered a torn ACL, the Steelers are going to test this offensive line because of what T.J. Watt is able to do.

If the Bills can slow him down, they will give themselves a great chance to win.
