Talk about an A+ performance.  After a quiet start to the season, defensive end Cam Jordan exploded onto the scene against Atlanta, racking up three sacks, six quarterback hurries and four stops.  He was a force to be reckoned with and will look to step it up again in Indy against subpar protection for Andrew Luck.

Jordan will continue to play a key X-factor for the remainder of the season.  Any sort of pressure to disrupt both the run and pass will help, but he’ll need some additional help from the rest of the defense, particularly rookie linebacker Hau’oli Kikaha, who continues his rapid rise into the NFL as the team leader in sacks (tied with Jordan).

It’s time for Jordan to build off that momentum and show his team he was worth the big bucks.
