Watt had two tackles and a sack during Sunday's 19-16 victory over the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Watt now is tied for the NFL lead with six sacks, with all six of them coming in the last three games. Teammate Jadeveon Clowney's recent dominance on the defensive line has aided Watt's pass rush, and Watt seems to have picked up right where he left off after injuries limited him to just eight games over the past two years.

Watt had three tackles and two quarterback hits in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Patriots in Week 1.

EDGE Analysis

Watt was initially quiet, but started getting into the backfield more often in the second half. While he didn't get credit for a sack, Watt created the pressure that forced New England quarterback Tom Brady into the waiting arms of D.J. Reader. It was a good effort by Watt, who was limited by injury to eight games played over the last two seasons.

Coach Romeo Crenel is optimistic that Watt will not be limited in Sunday's season-opener against the Patriots, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

"Right now he's been doing OK in practice," Crennel said, "so he should be there." Watt was heavily limited throughout the preseason, playing only three defensive series in one game against the Rams. While it's hard to say whether Watt will ever have the same impact as during his historically dominant 2012-2015 stretch, the defensive end at least looks likely to start against New England on Sunday.

Watt made several impact plays during Wednesday's joint practice session with the 49ers, John Harris of the Texans' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Watt made plays from both the right and left sides of the line, forcing San Francisco quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo into hurried and errant throws, or to adjust his delivery, or to throw an interception. The defensive end said earlier in the week that he will be ready to go Week 1 against the Patriots, and he backed up those words with his actions Wednesday.
