David was in the familiar position of pacing the team in tackles on the afternoon. It was a fitting cap on another strong season for the veteran linebacker, who finished with his best tackle tally since the 2015 campaign despite missing two games, and who also logged 3.5 sacks after being shut out in that category for the first time in his career last season. The 28-year-old remains under contract through 2020, and although he failed to log an interception for the second straight season in 2018, he still demonstrated his penchant for impact plays with a pair of fumble recoveries, a forced fumble, 11 tackles for loss and two defensed passes.
As customary, David made an impact on the stat sheet, recording multiple tackles for loss for the fourth time this season. David did see a notable downturn in his overall tackle numbers following three straight games with double-digit tallies, and after not having recorded any fewer than six stops in any prior contest. Despite Sunday's dip in overall production, David has nevertheless enjoyed another strong campaign, as he'll head into the Week 17 finale against the Falcons with 110 tackles (87 solo), 3.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble through 13 games.
David recorded 12 tackles (10 solo), including two sacks, and a fumble recovery in Sunday's loss to Baltimore.
David's two sacks Sunday give him three in as many weeks, and his 12 tackles Sunday brings his season total to a team high 105 (84 solo). He'll look to continue his strong year against the Cowboys in Week 16.
David recorded 10 tackles (nine solo) in Sunday's 28-14 loss to the Saints.
David was able to lead his team in tackles for the game and record his second consecutive game with double digit tackles. The Nebraska product continues to be a strong IDP option, accumulating 93 tackles (74 solo) in just 11 games. David will look to keep it going against the Ravens in Week 15.
David was outstanding in his two-game return from an MCL injury, easily pacing the team in tackles while recording his first full sack of the season. The 28-year-old has logged no fewer than six stops in any game this season, and he's totaled seven or more in five consecutive contests. Now apparently back at full health, David will look to once play a key role against a dangerous Saints offense in Week 14.
