Chandler Jones Is Having The Best Performance Of Week 1

There have been a few laudable performances thus far in Week 1, and Arizona Cardinals pass rusher Chandler Jones has turned in the most impressive one.

Jones, who was the subject of trade rumors this offseason due to reported unhappiness with his contract situation, has recorded five sacks and a pair of forced fumbles today. Arizona is destroying the Tennessee Titans, and Jones is a major reason why.

The two-time All-Pro only played in five games last season before suffering a torn bicep.

However, he clearly looks healthy and capable of returning to the form that got him 19 sacks in 2019 and 72.5 total from 2015-19.

Jones had a couple of four-sack games two years ago, including the one against the Seahawks mentioned in the above tweet. He also produced four sacks against the New York Giants in 2019.

With Jones leading the defense and Kyler Murray (five total touchdowns) leading the offense, it has been a dominant opening performance for the Cardinals. They lead the Titans 38-13 late in the fourth quarter.
