Ryan Kerrigan – LB – Washington Redskins

Kerrigan had a pretty solid game against the Seattle Seahawks, but the Washington Redskins defense as a whole found it impossible to keep Russell Wilson in the pocket. Wilson gained 122 yards on the ground and 201 more through the air, with a total of three touchdowns. Kerrigan was able to sack Wilson once, knock him down another time and finished with only five tackles.

For the season Kerrigan has 16 tackles, six sacks and a forced fumble. He is now tied with Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston for the most sacks this season.
