Someplace former Houston Texans quarterback David Carr has a smile on his face.
Because the NFL schedule turns to Week 5, Washington Commanders QB Sam Howell and New York Giants QB Daniel Jones are each on tempo to remove arguably essentially the most doubtful milestone of Carr’s 10-year NFL profession: most sacks taken in a single season.
In Monday’s 24-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, Jones was sacked a career-high 10 instances, placing him at 22 sacks taken. It was the second time in 4 video games he was sacked seven or extra instances — a quantity he reached simply as soon as in his earlier 54 video games getting into 2023.
Jones is simply the tenth quarterback since 2001 to be sacked 10 or extra instances in a single sport and the primary since Marcus Mariota was sacked 11 instances as a member of the Tennessee Titans in a 21-0 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in October 2018.
Following Sunday’s 34-31 extra time loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, during which he was sacked 5 instances, Howell leads the league with 24 sacks taken. He’s been sacked 4 instances or extra in each sport this yr, which features a nine-sack day towards the Buffalo Payments two weeks in the past.
