Stat Line Of The Night — 9/13/12 — Clay Matthews
The Green Bay Packers’ defence has owned Jay Cutler during his tenure with the Chicago Bears, and their domination over the 29-year-old quarterback continued on Thursday night.
Leading the way was none other than the Packers’ Pro Bowl linebacker, Clay Matthews
, who harassed the Bears signal-caller to the tune of 3.5 sacks, four quarterback hits, and one pass deflection. He also added four solo tackles, three assisted tackles and three tackles for a loss during the Packers’ 23-10 victory over their divisional foes.
After recording 2.5 sacks against the 49ers last week, Matthews now has six sacks on the season, equalling his total from last season after just two games. At this pace, he is a real threat to take down Michael Strahan’s NFL single season sack record (22.5), but for now, he earns “The Stat Line of the Night” for Thursday, September 13, 2012.
