T.J. Watt gave a new meaning to the term "strip-sack" on Sunday. Pittsburgh's star linebacker took a shot on Jets quarterback Sam Darnold that had every man in America cringing.

During the Steelers-Jets rock fight Sunday afternoon, Watt came off the edge on a Darnold drop-back late in the second quarter. He got to the young quarterback and appeared to punch the ball out. Well, he certainly punched something.

Check out the full-speed replay:

Watt was credited with a sack, forced fumble and a fumble recovery, but that doesn't seem fair. You can't hit a man in the pills, it's just not sporting!

Here's the slow-mo replay:

Ouch.

Darnold and the Jets had the last laugh as they wound up winning 16-10 and the second-year quarterback actually had a decent day. Hopefully he'll be able to walk tomorrow.
