Bradley Chubb, EDGE
Bradley Chubb continues to make his case for the NFL’s defensive rookie of the year award.
Not that anyone else is truly deserving in the eyes of Denver Broncos fans, but Chubb is certainly deserving.
He reached 10 sacks on the season in impressive fashion against the Bengals with a play that certainly has to make Von Miller proud.
With the Bengals attempting to get back in the game in a bit of desperation, Miller was double-teamed on the edge and had no shot at getting to the quarterback on a critical passing down.
Of course, chipping Miller with a running back and double-teaming him leaves Chubb one-on-one on the other side of the field, and if he beats the left tackle, quarterbacks beware.
Chubb got by his man and hit Jeff Driskel just as he was cocking his arm to throw, knocking the ball loose and eventually covering up the forced fumble he caused all on his own. Chubb’s effort on that particular play doesn’t overshadow a pretty special all-around game he had against the Bengals in which he played very well overall, notching a pair of QB hits in addition to his sack and racking up three solo tackles.
