Once again, for the second week in a row, Robert Quinn failed to cover any ground in the Deacon Jones Award race. That’s ok however, because there is still plenty of time left as we enter the final stretch of the season and Quinn is only down 2.5 sacks. Here are the top ten in the race for the Deacon Jones Award.
1. IND LB Robert Mathis- 15.5
2. STL DE Robert Quinn- 13.0
3. BUF DL Mario Williams- 12.0
4. KC LB Justin Houston- 11.0
5. NE DE Chandler Jones- 10.5
T6. NYJ DL Muhammad Wilkerson- 10.0
T6. MIA DE Olivier Vernon- 10.0
T8. BAL LB Elvis Dumervil- 9.5
T8. NO DE Cameron Jordan- 9.5
T8. HOU DE JJ Watt- 9.5
Those are the top ten candidates for the Deacon Jones award for week 13. Next week the Rams play the Arizona Cardinals, who Robert Quinn managed three sacks against in week one, while Robert Mathis and the Colts play the Cincinnati Bengals.
This competition looks like its going to be one that goes to the very end. Stay tuned Rams fans as this could get interesting. We are headed into the final stretch and it is only a matter of time before somebody pulls ahead.
