Deacon Jones Award Update: Week 4

Robert Quinn may only have two sacks since week one, but yet he is still right up there in sacks one quarter of the way though the season. However, it only takes one week to climb up the rankings and the Rams play the Jaguars this week who have given up the most sacks in 2013 along with the Miami Dolphins with 18. However, for now, Justin Houston of the Kansas City Chiefs continues to impress as he shares the top spot with Robert Mathis. Here are the top ten standings for the Deacon Jones Award after week four.

    Is CLong @ 1 Blaine ? How lame ! That projects to 4 the entire season.

    We are not gonna get 52 this year
    unless every D player pucks it up.
    Perhaps JLDunbar will provide the
    Spark/Leadership this team needs.

      Worse..Chris Long I believe has .5 sacks so not even a full one yet. I think 52 is definitely out of reach at this point unless opposing offensive lines just fall over for our dline and im not even sure about then. Agree with you on Walton…
