With each passing game, T.J. Watt‘s career gets more and more Hall of Fame-worthy, and Sunday against the Green Bay Packers was no different.

When Watt took down quarterback Jordan Love in the second quarter, he surpassed the sack total of a very well-known defensive end: J.J. Watt. Watt has 88 sacks in 96 games, four less than his older brother.

And he just can’t get enough.

“None of it registers, honestly,” he said Monday on the Green Light podcast. “I can’t even fathom all of the stuff that’s been accomplished… I’m sure one day we’ll sit down and watch a whole bunch of highlights and talk about everything. I can’t get through my mind what’s happening. I just know that I’m addicted to the process of continually trying to get better, and I’m just so hungry.”

But there’s no time to dwell on his outstanding accomplishments — one of Pittsburgh’s biggest games of the corner is mere days away with the Cleveland Browns on deck.

“It’s just a massive game this week, and there’s no time to sit back and pat myself on the back and get a big head. I just know how special this moment is. I know how short of a period that I have to play this game, and I’m trying to maximize the most of it, and I just want to keep going.”

Watt’s a humble dude who clearly doesn’t feel comfortable bragging about all he’s done in his seven-year career. There’s too much work to be done.
