Jets Week 14 Game Ball: Muhammad Wilkerson

Who am I to argue with Darrelle Revis? I will limit my game ball to one player on the defensive line, though.

It is kind of flying under the radar, but Muhammad Wilkerson is having a great season. How well is he playing? Let me give you a trivia question.

What do Khalil Mack, JJ Watt, and Ezekiel Ansah have in common? They are the only three players in the entire NFL who have more sacks than Wilkerson this season.

Mo added 3 more to his total yesterday to bring his season total to 12, a career high. He also batted a pass down and was credited with a forced fumble. Wilkerson does not always play a role that lends itself to filling up a stat sheet. Frequently his contributions are doing unheralded but important dirty work, winning his assignment and making life easier on his teammates. Yesterday was not one of those days. It was a monster impact any way you look at it.

For this, Wilkerson gets my game ball. Who gets yours?

*Also, Mike Maccagnan and Woody Johnson, please prepare to cut the man a large check soon.
