Yannick Ngakoue has already made the record books only 5 games into his career. Ngakoue has racked up, 9 tackles, 2 assisted tackles, 3 forced fumbles, 1 interceptions, and 4 sacks.
All of these stats are incredible, especially because it is only 5 games into the season. The most amazing stat would have to be the 3 forced fumbles. This is a very impressive feat for a young rookie. It shows that Ngakoue has a very good feel for the backfield while being able to keep his head up and find the ball.
The Jaguars found a steal in the third round of the draft. Ngakoue is the kind of player that every team dreams of. Someone that comes out of the gate swinging. It took no time at all for Ngakoue to adjust to the NFL. He has put up better numbers in 5 games than some players would put up in a season.
With the help from this rising star and the addition of new talents like Dante Fowler and Malik Jackson. The Jaguars look to dominate the running game and the passing game with their defensive line. Sunday the Jaguars should shut down the average run game of the Raiders and control the pace of the game with their defense.
