I think Slidell Saint needs to get a Cam Jordan jersey...

Saints' Cam Jordan has sacked Matt Ryan so many times it set a new NFL record: report

When Matt Ryan looks back on an NFL career filled with accolades and plaudits, he should be careful -- there's a chance Cam Jordan might still be coming after him.

The Saints defensive end sacked the Falcons quarterback four times in their Thanksgiving showdown, the 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th times Jordan has taken Ryan down in his career. That mark is the most sacks by any player against a single quarterback in NFL recorded history, according to a report from ESPN's Mike Triplett citing the Elias Sports Bureau



That data goes back to 1982, when stats became an official statistic in the NFL. 

But Jordan wasn't satisfied with his first career four-sack performance. 

Cam Jordan got himself a 4-piece. Can he hit 20? What about all those other goals?

"It hurts because I could have had five. It could have been five," he said after the win and a turkey leg snack. "I’m trying to make these nights special. You only have so many opportunities available."

The mark had previously been set at 17.5 and held by a Dexter Manley against Phil Simms and Bruce Smith against Ken O'Brien, according to Triplett. 


Jordan also walked off the field after the Saints' 26-18 victory with 13.5 sacks on the season, the top mark in the NFL. Tampa Bay's Shaquil Barrett and Arizona's Chandler Jones both sit one behind at 12.5, though both have played one fewer game.

The total set a new career-high for Jordan in just 12 games.

“He makes it look easy, man," defensive tackle David Onyemata said. "That’s just what it is. He makes it look easy.”

The team combined to sack Ryan nine times, a franchise record and the most recorded by the Saints in a single game since the 2001 season, also against the Falcons. The Saints sacked Atlanta quarterback Chris Chandler nine times in that game, which also fell in Week 13.

Jordan was also in the background of a viral clip that will likely go down in Saints lore as defensive end Shy Tuttle intercepted a pass and rumbled down the field, putting a stiff arm in the face of the pursuing Ryan as he was sent tumbling to the turf.



"It was disgusting," Jordan said, grinning. "And I loved it."
