Bruce Irvin Helps Chris Clemons Win NFC Player of the Week Award

  Chris Clemons had 4 sacks against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers on Monday Night Football tying a Seahawks single-game record for sacks. He didn’t record his first sack until Bruce Irvin sacked Rodgers for the second time.

  Why? Clemons tells us:

“It actually gave me the opportunity,” Clemons said. “Because they realized they had to block [Irvin], and if they didn’t block him, he would have a monster night. So giving me the opportunity to go one-on-one backside, it was a blessing, and actually an opportunity for me to take advantage of it.”

  With Irvin’s breakout game and Clemons’ performance, NFL teams will have to figure out a way to balance protection for their quarterbacks.
