Being on the short list of candidates for the NFL’s defensive player of the year award won’t earn T.J. Watt too many accolades at family gatherings.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers have parted ways with outside linebackers coach Joey Porter.
The team announced Friday that Porter's contract would not be renewed. The move is the first of what could be several coaching adjustments by the Steelers after Pittsburgh failed to make the playoffs for the first time since 2013.
NEW YORK (AP) — Pittsburgh's T.J. Watt has been fined $20,054 by the NFL for his hit on Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan, and the Steelers linebacker says he will appeal it.
Watt rolled into the right leg of Ryan during the Steelers' 41-17 victory last Sunday and was called for roughing the passer. Watt, who had three sacks and was named the AFC defensive player of the week, said earlier in the week that he pulled his hands off the quarterback and that can be seen in the film.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — T.J. Watt is not trying to match his older brother sack for sack. Honest.
It's just sort of happening that way for the second-year Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker, whose six quarterback takedowns through the first five weeks of the season have him tied with Cincinnati defensive end Carlos Dunlap and Houston Texans star J.J. Watt — the oldest of the three Watt brothers in the NFL — for the league lead.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — On the surface, the Pittsburgh Steelers' offseason decision to flip outside linebackers Bud Dupree and T.J. Watt looked a little bit of a reach.
While Watt was steady and occasionally spectacular as a rookie in 2017 for a team that led the NFL in sacks, Dupree has spent much of his first three years in the NFL searching for consistency to justify the first-round pick the Steelers used on him in 2015.
Browns tie! Browns tie! Browns tie!
It's not a win, but Cleveland will take it after going 0-16 last year and 1-15 in 2016.
CLEVELAND (AP) — When the ball deflected off T.J. Watt's left hand and fluttered to a water-logged landing, well short of the crossbar, there was nothing more the Browns could do.
Their 17-game losing streak was over. Without a win — or a loss. Nothing to celebrate.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Well, the Browns didn't lose.
Cleveland ended its 17-game losing streak on Sunday with a 21-21 tie against the Pittsburgh Steelers. But the Browns missed a chance at their first victory since 2016 when kicker Zane Gonzalez's 43-yard field-goal attempt with 9 seconds left in OT was blocked by T.J. Watt — who also had four sacks.
CLEVELAND (AP) — One week in and the Browns are still undefeated.
Now that's progress.
Cleveland ended its 17-game losing streak on Sunday with a 21-21 tie against the Pittsburgh Steelers, who prevented the Browns from getting their first victory since 2016 when linebacker T.J. Watt blocked Zane Gonzalez's 43-yard field-goal attempt with 9 seconds left in OT.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Improved coverage in the Pittsburgh Steelers' secondary has allowed the defense an opportunity to make team history.
The Steelers have 50 sacks, which is five from the franchise record entering Sunday's regular-season finale against Cleveland.
"If you can get them to hold the ball a little bit and make them second-guess themselves by changing up the coverages and blitzes, then that really helps us," defensive coordinator Keith Butler said.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ryan Shazier's locker sat untouched in a corner of the Pittsburgh Steelers locker room Wednesday save for one little piece: his yellow No. 50 practice jersey, which found its way into the hands and over the shoulders of good friend and fellow inside linebacker Vince Williams.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Vince Biegel is one step closer to playing for the NFL team that he has rooted for since childhood.
The Green Bay Packers activated Biegel from the reserve/physically unable to perform list on Friday. The rookie linebacker was sidelined for the first two months of the season as he slowly worked his way back from offseason foot surgery.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — James Harrison spent last weekend standing on the sideline waiting for a call that never came.
The NFL's oldest defensive player didn't take the field for a single snap during Pittsburgh's 26-9 win over Minnesota in Week 2, the first time in more than a decade the five-time Pro Bowler was healthy enough to take his usual menacing spot at outside linebacker and just watched instead.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Two weeks in and Mike Tomlin's problems are of the NFL first-world variety.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are unbeaten at 2-0 despite not lighting up scoreboards the way they anticipated, managing just four offensive touchdowns through eight quarters.
The defense has been solid, though it has forced just one turnover and is still searching for its first interception.
Kareem Hunt, Dalvin Cook and T.J. Watt led the way as rookie running backs and linebackers made an immediate impact in Week 1.
Of the 266 rookies who were on active NFL rosters, 34 started on offense or defense and 13 more played at least half the snaps. Sixteen of those 47 players are linebackers and running backs. At least one player at each position started.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers spent the better part of four years trying to retool at outside linebacker, searching for the kind of players who could create the chaos that came so easily to James Harrison and Lamar Woodley in their primes.
The rookies stole the show in Week 1.
After Kareem Hunt's record-setting debut in Kansas City's stunning win at New England on Thursday night, several players had impressive first games Sunday.
Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt, younger brother of J.J. Watt, recorded two sacks and an interception in Pittsburgh's 21-18 win over Cleveland. Still, he wasn't satisfied.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — T.J. Watt is a quick study. Growing up in a household with two older brothers, he didn't really have a choice. Adapt or get left behind. Quickly.
PITTSBURGH STEELERS (13-6)
New faces: CB Joe Haden, LB T.J. Watt, TE Vance McDonald, RB James Conner, WR Juju Smith-Schuster, CB Cam Sutton.
Key losses: LB Lawrence Timmons, RB DeAngelo Williams, TE Ladarius Green, WR Markus Wheaton, WR Sammie Coates, LB Jarvis Jones.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — No. 9 Wisconsin has lost another linebacker with sophomore Zack Baun out for the year with a left foot injury.
Baun was expected to be a key contributor at outside linebacker behind starters Garret Dooley and Leon Jacobs. The Badgers were already replacing last year's starters on the outside, T.J. Watt and Vince Biegel, who are now in the NFL.
LATROBE, Pa. (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers first-round pick T.J. Watt will take all the preseason snaps he can get at right outside linebacker.
And perhaps most of them in the regular season too, a fact the man his is in the process of replacing isn't fighting.
James Harrison is the Steelers' all-time sacks leader, including a team-high five last season at the not-so tender age of 38.
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) — J.J. Watt learned of his brother T.J. Watt's big game on Friday night from an unlikely source.
The Houston Texans star checked his phone after a team meeting to see a text from Grammy Award-winning rapper Kendrick Lamar alerting him to the T.J.'s work in Pittsburgh preseason game.
"It was the most crazy thing in the world," J.J. said.
According to J.J., the text said: "I see your little bro out there ballin'. Hope all is well."
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Watching T.J. Watt and Josh Dobbs in their first NFL game, Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin got what he expected from the draft picks.
They had their ups and downs, and they showed they belonged in the league, as did eighth-year linebacker Arthur Moats.
