Watch- Playing Favorites: Pass Rush
Clay Beats 3
In Week 3 against Kansas City in prime time at Lambeau Field, Clay Matthews put together a two-sack performance as the defense racked up seven in all. On this one, Matthews split two Chiefs offensive linemen off the snap and then beat a third with his quickness to get to QB Alex Smith.
Be Like Mike
At Minnesota in Week 11, Mike Daniels used his never-quit attitude to beat Vikings RG Mike Harris, bringing down QB Teddy Bridgewater despite Harris still trying to block him. It was one of the Packers’ six sacks of Bridgewater on the day.
The Incredible Mr. Peppers
In the second half of the Packers’ Week 15 road victory at Oakland, Peppers moved into the Top 10 on the NFL’s all-time sack list. Battling Raiders LG Gabe Jackson, Peppers got a hand in QB Derek Carr’s face, drew a holding penalty, and eventually brought Carr down for the history-making sack.
