Deacon Jones Award Update: Week 11


The Rams had a bye week this week which was unfortunate for Robert Quinn because it meant that he could not move up in the sack standings. Luckily for him however is that Mathis didn’t separate himself from the group and nobody below Quinn had a breakout game which means Quinn is still in second place.

This season the NFL is honoring Deacon Jones by giving the NFL sack leader the Deacon Jones Award. Here at Ramblin’ Fan, we have been keeping track weekly. Here are the standings after week 11.

 

1. IND LB Robert Mathis- 13.5

2. STL DE Robert Quinn- 12.0

T3. BUF DE Mario Williams- 11.0

T3. KC LB Justin Houston- 11.0

T5. BAL LB Terrell Suggs- 9.0

T5. KC LB Tamba Hali- 9.0

T5. DEN LB Shaun Phillips- 9.0

T8. BAL LB Elvis Dumervil- 8.5

T8. CAR DE Charles Johnson- 8.5

T8. HOU DE JJ Watt- 8.5

T8. NE DE Chandler Jones- 8.5

 

After 11 weeks that is where the standings lie and with six weeks left to go this competition looks like it could go down to the final week to determine a winner. This week the Rams play the Bears who,  in the last couple of years, have been known for giving up a lot of sacks, have given up the third least in the NFL.
