New York's offensive line did a mostly solid job of keeping Casey out of their backfield, but the defensive lineman still found a way to make an imprint on the game by being active as a tackler. This performance puts Casey on pace for 53 tackles, which makes sense considering the 26-year-old recorded between 52 and 55 tackles in three of his first four NFL seasons.
Casey stepped up after failing to put much pressure on the quarterback in a Week 12 loss to Oakland. The 26-year-old lineman is on pace for a career-low 48 tackles this season, but his six sacks through 12 games are nothing to sneeze at.
Casey was held in check by Oakland's offensive line, despite the season-high tackle total, as he was unable to penetrate the backfield with any effectiveness. Look for him to be more disruptive next week facing a Jaguars line that he beat for a sack in Week 11.
Jurrell Casey picked up his fifth sack of the season Thursday in Jacksonville to go along with a solo tackle for loss and a quarterback hit.
The disruptive defensive lineman is having a solid season, as it's taken him just 10 games to match his sack total from the 2014 season. Casey should continue to fly under the radar due to the overall ineptitude of Tennessee's roster.
Jurrell Casey recorded 0.5 sacks to go along with five tackles (three solo) Sunday in Houston.
The fifth-year defensive lineman out of USC had failed to record a sack in each of his past two contests, but brought his season total up to four with this performance. Casey and the defense aren't the problem in Tennessee.
