Davis had eight total tackles (five solo) in Sunday's divisional-round playoff win over the Eagles.
Davis, who finished the regular season with a team-high 110 total tackles in all 16 games, was a key contributor to a Saints defense that held the Eagles offense scoreless over the final three quarters. Tying a career-high with five sacks this season, Davis has proven to be worth every penny of the three-year, $24 million contract he signed with the Saints last offseason.
Davis tallied three tackles, one sack and one fumble recovery during Sunday's victory over the Steelers.
Davis made a couple of key plays Sunday, but none were as important as the game-sealing fumble recovery he opportunistically stumbled upon during the contest's closing minutes. While his tackle total was nothing to write home about, Davis entered the game averaging 7.4 tackles per contest in 2018, so he should rebound in that column during the Saints' regular-season finale against a Panthers team that will likely be reliant on the run game without starting quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) under center.
Davis had eight tackles (four solo) and a sack in Monday's 12-9 win over the Panthers.
Davis also added two pass breakups as the Saints were able to stifle the Panthers offense throughout the evening. The 29-year-old leads the team with 103 tackles (70 solo), and also has four sacks and two forced fumbles through 14 games.
Davis had 11 tackles (five solo) in Thursday's 13-10 loss to the Cowboys.
It's the second time this season Davis has reached double-digit tackles, and he tied his season high Thursday. The 29-year-old has 87 tackles (59 solo) and two forced fumbles through 12 games, and he's recorded less than five tackles in only one game thus far.
Davis recorded six tackles (five solo), one sack and one fumble recovery during Thursday's 31-17 win over the Falcons.
Davis played a key role in holding Atlanta's offense to only 17 points Thanksgiving Day, and he made his presence known during all phases of the game. The veteran should remain a reliable IDP option against the Cowboys in Week 13.
