Stud: Cameron Jordan

Cameron Jordan has made up for his slow start to the season over the past few weeks, but his game versus the Broncos was especially solid.

Jordan made the already uncomfortable practice squad receiver Kendall Hinton look even more uncomfortable as on his first career pass attempt he was greeted by Cameron Jordan who shoved him to the ground.

Jordan recorded two tackles, two tackles for a loss, one sack, and four quarterback hits on Sunday and there were only nine pass attempts to record pass rush stats.

The fact that Cameron Jordan was in the backfield on just about half of Hinton’s pass attempts attests to the work ethic and perseverance he has when trying to rush the passer.

Jordan generated consistent pressure while still absorbing double team blocks which is why he falls under the stud category this week.
