Griffen had a sack and five total tackles in Sunday's 23-10 win over Green Bay. He now has seven sacks, including at least one in all six games. Griffen will need sacks in two more games to tie the Minnesota record for consecutive games with sacks set by Jim Marshall in 1969 and tied by Jared Allen in 2010 and 2011. His five stops Sunday are also encouraging, as his IDP value has been somewhat limited by low tackle totals in the past.
Griffen recorded two solo tackles, a sack and forced a fumble Monday against the Bears. This marks the fifth straight game in which Griffen has recorded a sack, cementing him as the Vikings' top pass rusher with six sacks so far this season. His inconsistency racking up a relevant amount of tackles is troubling, though, since his IDP value is reliant on his sack count. It'll be interesting how he performs against the Packers in Week 6, especially with the injuries on Green Bay's offensive front.
Griffen totaled five tackles (three solo) and a sack in Sunday's 14-7 loss to Detroit. Griffen now has five sacks on the season and has recorded at least one in each game. The 29-year-old also led the Vikings with three quarterback hits Sunday and is already nearing his 2016 sack total of eight just four games into the season.
Griffen continued his hot start to the season Sunday, as he recorded his fourth sack in a victory over the Buccaneers. Griffen only had one tackle in the contest, but he made it count by sacking Jameis Winston on a second quarter third-down. While his tackle total has decreased each week, the veteran defensive end continues to pressure opposing quarterbacks. He'll look keep his sack streak to start the season alive in Week 4's matchup against the Lions.
Griffen had two sacks and four total tackles in Sunday's loss at Pittsburgh. With three sacks in his first two games, Griffen looks set to return to the double-digit sack totals he had in 2014 and 2015 before a slight dip to eight sacks last season.
