It was a tough choice with Chase Edmonds carving the Giants’ defense on the ground, but this week I had to give a tip of the cap to Chandler Jones.
Racking up 4 sacks on the day for a career high with a forced fumble and recovery on one of those to boot, Chandler made the game a nightmare for Daniel Jones. In fact, it made for a fun bit of trivia.
Chandler Jones’ 4.0 sacks today are a career-high for him.— Mark Dalton (@CardsMarkD) October 20, 2019
It’s the 1st four-sack performance by a Cardinal since Bertrand Berry got Giants QB Kurt Warner 4 times on 11/14/04
It wasn’t just the box score that Jones has to feel good about, as he was in the backfield impacting other plays. Such as you can see below both drawing the hold on Remmers and still making it to the QB to disrupt the pass.
Jones has been nothing short of incredible for his tenure as a Cardinal, and in a season were turnovers have been scarce, has already reached 4 force fumbles and 3 recoveries on the season.
Do you think I made the right choice? Who was your player of the game?
