NFL Sacks Leaders 2020

We have seen a lot of individual defensive performances over the years, and sacks are such an important stat because they occur more often than interceptions and fumbles. We can truly see who are the best pass rushers in the game and how they have an effect on their team’s overall defense. With the league being more pass happy these days, getting pressure on a quarterback is important. Within this page you can see who is generating the most sacks, but also who is pressuring the quarterback the most. While they may not get a sack, they might have still disrupted the play and it is important to see that. Check to see who is leading the league or conference in sacks. As we get deeper into the season you can see who is making an impact by sacks per game. Once the playoffs hit, swap over tabs and see who is dominating the playoffs with their pass rush.
