Front Line Pressure Churns Up Huge Results
Not 1, 2, 3, 4, but 5 times Matt Ryan went to the ground yesterday. Cameron Jordan led the way with 2.5 sacks. Akiem Hicks had 1.5 sacks, and Keyunta Dawson/Parys Haralson were credited with .5 sack each. The Saints hit Matt Ryan 10 times on the night, with Cam Jordan being credited with 4 of those.
There was a lot of analysts marveling (and salivating) at the production from Jordan, and rightfully so, as he just dominated the Falcons offensive line. Did anyone mention that he’s in just his 3rd season?
One thing’s for sure, if/when he continues this type of production, he will be signing a humongous paycheck.
