Steelers’ T.J. Watt Hit With Multiple Fines from Ravens Win

The Steelers’ T.
From the Ravens victory, Watt received multiple fines.

NFL has penalized Steelers OLB T.
J. Watt received several fines following the team’s victory over the Baltimore Ravens.
The $13,659 fine he received for taking off his helmet to celebrate sacking Lamar Jackson to win the game is the most expensive of the week.
This week, L’Jarius Sneed of the Kansas City Chiefs was also fined for removing his helmet during a game against the Detroit Lions. Watt is not the only player to have received a fine for doing so.

In contrast to Watt, Sneed did not receive a penalty call on the field.
However, the NFL is being particularly strict this year with regard to fines, which is why Watt and Sneed both received sizable fines.
The Ravens did not gain a first down as a result of Watt’s penalty because it happened after the play.

The second fine is associated with the incident in which Watt appears to have punched Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers.
For that play, Watt received a $11,473 fine. Lamar Jackson throws the ball to Flowers in the middle of Watt, Patrick Peterson, and Cole Holcomb while Watt is positioned to cover the area in zone coverage on the play. Flowers fumbles the ball, and Watt successfully knocks it out with a punch. However, the NFL penalized Watt for what it deemed to be unnecessary roughness.
No penalty for unnecessary roughness on the field was assessed during that play.

One player from each team fined Watt, who is the only one.
It does, nonetheless, continue a pattern this season where the Steelers have received significant fines.
The player who has been fined the most throughout the season is linebacker Kwon Alexander.
The NFL’s most fined team in 2022 was Pittsburgh.
Once again, they are among the league leaders in that metric, and the team receives many fines every week.
The most recent victim of that hammer is Watt.
