Whitney Mercilus recorded five tackles, two sacks, a pass deflection, and forced a fumble against the Steelers on Monday.
While J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney attract all the publicity for the Houston defense, people often forget about Whitney Mercilus. The Texans used a first round pick on him and he is a solid player on that defense. Watt recovered the fumble that he forced, and the Texans will hope he can put up more games like this one, especially with the return of Jadeveon Clowney looming.
