Fifty writers voted for the NFL Awards. Twenty-seven writers voted for Aaron Donald and Twenty voted for TJ Watt. Crowning Aaron Donald the 2020 Defensive Player of the Year Award.
No disrespect to Aaron Donald, but TJ Watt deserved the award this season. When it was announced who won the Defensive Player of the Year, TJ Watt took to Social Media with a Michael Jordan meme that said "and I took that personally." Many Steelers players chimed in, but one notable Steeler was Minkah Fitzpatrick who said TJ earned that award and it was highway robbery. Steeler Nation agrees with Minkah because the outpouring of support for TJ Watt throughout last night was incredible. Shocked Social Media didn't meltdown.
