Jets Edge Rusher Carl Lawson’s seven Quarterback hits on Sunday were a rare feat.
In fact, just 14 other NFL players have ever logged that total since the statistic was officially tracked 22 years ago.
Lawson, coming off an achilles surgery in 2021, looked like the player the team signed to be a forced on the edge.
Sunday’s game against the Dolphins was rare enough because the club had a lead most of the game, enabling the defense to dial up more pass rushes.
Lawson’s total hits Sunday brought his season total to 14th, ranking him second in that category behind Nick Bosa.
Lawson set a one-game career high with his hit total Sunday.
Lawson’s career high for a full season is 32, a mark he set in 2020 with the Bengals.
