Mack, who logged six tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Chargers, finishes up the 2017 season with 78 tackles (61 solo), 10.5 sacks, three passes defensed and one forced fumble in 16 games. On the heels of his 2016 Defensive Player of the Year award, Mack posted a career-high 78 tackles in 2017 but regressed in terms of sacks and turnovers forced. The edge rusher is slated to be a key member for the Raiders' defense again in 2018, when he'll make a base salary of nearly $14 million before potentially becoming an unrestricted free agent in 2019.
Mack logged four tackles (three solo), one sack, and forced and recovered a fumble in Sunday's win over the Giants. Mack landed a heavy hit on Geno Smith, forcing a fumble, which the All-Pro also recovered. It was a pivotal play that came with a little more than 30 seconds left until halftime as the Giants were driving inside Oakland's red zone. Mack now has a sack in each of the past three games and is a key reason for the Raiders' defensive turnaround the past couple of weeks.
Mack logged two tackles (two solo), one sack and a pass defensed during Sunday's 21-14 win over the Broncos. Mack notched a sack for the second consecutive game to bring his season total to 6.5. He'll look to force the first turnover of his 2017 campaign in Week 13 against a struggling Giants offense.
Mack posted five tackles (two solo) and a half sack Thursday against the Chiefs. Mack now has 40 tackles (30 solo) and 4.5 sacks through seven games this season. His sack total so far looks like a regression to the 15 he posted in 2015 and the 11 he posted in 2016, but playing the Bills in Week 8 should be a good chance to get back on track.
Mack accounted for seven tackles (seven solo) and two sacks during Sunday's loss to the Broncos. Mack is now averaging one sack per game through the first four weeks of the regular season, but the 2016 Defensive Player of the Year has yet to force a turnover. He'll look to add to his sack total in Week 5 against the Ravens, who rank near the middle of the pack in terms of sacks allowed.
