Highsmith seemed to benefit from Sunday’s return by T.J. Watt. He delivered 2 sacks in the win over New Orleans, his most since Week 1 – the last time Watt played. Highsmith also tallied 5 total tackles, his 1st game with more than 2 since Week 3. That matched his combined total for the previous 5 contests.
Next comes a rematch with the Bengals, who afforded Highsmith 3 sacks, 4 QB hits, 9 tackles and a forced fumble back in Week 1.
