NEW YORK USA -- (BUSINESS WIRE)

Thursday, October 1, 2020

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt is featured on Sports Illustratedís October 2020 cover as part of an in-depth story by senior writer Jenny Vrentas on turnovers in the NFL and how their increasing rarity puts a premium on uniquely talented players such as Watt. The key to NFL success is simple: turnovers. The team with the most almost always wins and as a result, interceptions and fumbles are rarer than ever. This makes Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt exceptionally valuable: no one in the NFL is better at forcing a turnover than Watt.

His cover photo was shot exclusively by SI on Sept. 15. With T.J.ís appearance the Watt family joins a unique club: siblings who have appeared on the SI cover art different times. T.J.ís older brother J.J Watt of the Houston Texans has been on the cover multiple times. The list of SI sibling appearances includes Serena and Venus Williams, Eli and Peyton Manning, Pedro and Ramon Martinez and more.

Also in SIís October issue:

The Mastersí Opportunity. Augusta National has always prided itself as a place where time stands still. But nothing is normal about this year's November Masters. Michael Rosenberg illustrates how golf's most hallowed event has a unique opportunity to evolve.

The mask debate. While a hot-button issue now, itís nothing new in sports. NHL goalies were once shamed for covering up in the name of safety. Steve Rushin explores the history of mask appeal in sports.

Fernando Tatis Jr.ís fun revolution. ďFun" is not a word anyone will associate with 2020, unless the topic is the San Diego Padresí Fernando Tatis Jr. Emma Baccellieri shares how Tatis Jr. turned a shortened season into a joyful celebration of his talent, disregarding the MLBís stodgy culture.

The future of the NCAA. The lawyer who helped retired NFL players reach a concussion class-action settlement with the league has a new target and a new strategy: take on college football over the same issue with a blizzard of individual cases. Jason Schwartz explores how the future of the NCAA could be at stake.

USCís Tragic Linebacking Corps of 1989. The Trojans had 12 linebackers on its 1989 depth chart, each leaning into what seemed to be the limitless future football could provide. Now five of those men -- including NFL legend Junior Seau -- are dead, all before the age of 50 and all after seeming to suffer physical, mental, and emotional deteriorations consistent with CTE. Michael Rosenberg tells how football brought a group of men together, and over time may have broken them down.

Also in this Issue Leading Off: While most of us have experienced the return of sports through a screen, a few fans have had coveted in-person moments this fall. From Wrigley Field to Oklahoma to West Point, they share a view of an unprecedented spectator experience.

Scorecard: Tom Verducci reflects on the 25th anniversary of the classic Mariners-Yankees Division Series. All it did was save baseball in Seattle, help create the New York dynasty, and convince fans that the wild card was good for baseball after all.
