It wasn’t that way back that soccer minds puzzled whether or not then-San Diego Chargers defensive finish Joey Bosa would find yourself being an costly bust. No person’s questioning that anymore.
Bosa sacked Tom Brady halfway by way of the now-Los Angeles Chargers’ sport towards the New England Patriots, marking Bosa’s 19th profession sack. That’s probably the most by any participant in his first 20 video games in NFL historical past.*
(*-The caveat right here is that the NFL started monitoring the sack stat in 1982, so there have been loads of old-school sacks that went untracked. However it’s nonetheless protected to say Bosa may be very, superb.)
The Chargers sacked Brady thrice Sunday, albeit in a 21-13 defeat on the highway.
Bosa is among the few highlights of an in any other case lackluster Chargers season. The all-time sacks chief stays Bruce Smith, who had 200 over a 19-year, 279-game profession. If Bosa continues his present zero.95-sacks-per-game price, he’d cross Smith someday within the 2028 season. Not that we’re projecting ahead an excessive amount of or something.
