Racking up three total sacks and a force fumble in the shutout win in Tennessee. After Sundays win, Smith is currently tied for fifth among NFL sack leaders. Currently in front of guys like Khalil Mack, Myles Garrett and Aaron Donald.

Both players are 25 and under and can arguably say they haven’t even their prime.
