3. Donald on verge of career high in sacks

Remember at the beginning of the season when some Rams were so frustrated with Aaron Donald failing to record a sack over the first three games, they thought the organization was overpaying the defensive superstar? Since then, Donald has recorded 10 sacks over his previous five games, with two more coming against Aaron Rodgers on Sunday.

With eight games to go, it’s crazy to think how Donald only needs one more to tie his career high (11), and unless something ridiculous happens, there’s every reason to believe he will crush this milestone. Some football fans will quickly point out that a player with Donald’s talent should have way more than just 11 sacks as a career high, but also it should be noted that these numbers came despite all of the extra attention he would receive from opponents.

One of the main reasons why Los Angeles was so excited over signing Ndamukong Suh was due to the fact that Donald would most likely be one of the players on the Rams that benefitted the most, which seems to be the case over the last five games. Suh is one problem for opponents to deal with since he’s a freak of a defender just like Donald, but the two of them teaming up together has to be absolutely terrifying for opposing offenses.
