Khalil Mack does something nobody else has accomplished since Charles Woodson

Late in the second quarter of the Oakland Raiders' eventual victory over the Carolina Panthers, star pass-rusher Khalil Mack jumped and intercepted a Cam Newton screen pass. He returned it for a touchdown.

Late in the fourth quarter, with the Panthers attempting to mount a last-ditch comeback drive, Mack screamed around the edge and sacked Newton. In doing so, he knocked the ball out of the 2015 MVP's hands. When it went to the ground, Mack recovered it himself.

The interception, combined with the sack, strip, and recovery, made Mack the first player since Charles Woodson in 2009 (then with the Packers) to record a sack, interception, forced fumble, fumble recovery, and touchdown in the same game.

"That's great company right there," Mack said after the game, per NFL.com. "C-Wood, that's my big bro. We talk all the time. He tells me, 'It's time for you to take over games.' Fortunately, I was in position to do a little bit of that today."

Mack is obviously one of the best defensive players in football, and considering he is just 25 years old, it's likely that he's got plenty more huge games ahead of him.
