Jones posted five tackles (four solo), two sacks, one tackle for loss and one forced fumble during Sunday's 30-27 loss in Tampa Bay.
With seven sacks in his last four games, Jones has pushed his way into a tie for first in the league with the Bucs' Shaquil Barrett at 11.5 total. Moreover, Jones is the solo leader with five forced fumbles on the campaign. His tackle number (27) leaves something to be desired, but he's contributing enough elsewhere to be a relevant weekly IDP.
Jones had a sack on his lone tackle in Thursday's loss to the 49ers.
Jones forced a punt with his third-down sack in the third quarter, but he was unable to provide any additional production. Despite the sack, the 29-year-old has been quiet over the past two games with one tackle in each contest. Jones has 22 tackles (18 solo) and 9.5 sacks through nine games.
Jones racked up four sacks in Sunday's 27-21 win over the Giants.
Jones now sits among the top of the league with 8.5 sacks on the season, trailing only Shaquil Barrett and Myles Garrett -- both have nine. The Cardinals will face the Saints in Week 8. The Saints' offensive line has yielded 11 sacks to opposing defenses over the last six games with Teddy Bridgewater under center, but Drew Brees (finger), who may return for this contest, was sacked just once in his only full game this year.
Jones marked four tackles (one solo) and a sack in Sunday's 26-23 win over the Bengals.
Jones now has four sacks through five games. He's on pace to record his fifth straight double-digit sack season, but he'll have a tough test ahead against the Falcons and Matt Ryan, who only was sacked twice by the Texans in Week 5.
Jones recorded four tackles and a strip sack, causing a fumble he recovered, across 85 defensive snaps in Sunday's tie with the Lions.

Jones has lost 25 pounds, weighing in at 255 pounds at the outset of the Cardinals' offseason program, Mike Jurecki of the Cardinals' official sitereports.
Jones bulked up in order to move from a 3-4 outside linebacker to a down lineman in Steve Wilks' 4-3 scheme last season. His stat line didn't suffer as a result -- 13 sacks, his fifth time in six campaigns in double digits -- but the defense overall fell out of the top 10 in yards allowed for the first time since 2014. With the move back to a 3-4 defense and working opposite veteran pass rusher Terrell Suggs, Jones will be seeking out yet another year with 10-plus sacks and multiple forced fumbles.
Jones accrued 13 sacks among his 49 tackles during the 2018 season.
The sack total marks Jones' fifth with double digits in seven pro campaigns, including all three since he was dealt from New England to Arizona in March of 2016. During that stretch, he leads all NFL defenders in the category with 41, while ranking second in tackles for loss with 57 behind only the Rams' Aaron Donald. Jones is locked up through the 2021 season, and the potential arrival of an elite pass rusher with the Cardinals holding the No. 1 pick in this year's draft could open up even more opportunities for Jones to take down opposing quarterbacks in 2019 and beyond.
Jones recorded four solo tackles and a sack during Sunday's 20-17 win over the Packers.

Jones recorded three tackles (all solo) and two sacks during Sunday's 26-14 loss to the Chiefs.

Jones made three tackles (two solo) and one sack in Thursday's 45-10 loss to the Broncos.

He's also up to four pass deflections and three forced fumbles this year, including a strip-sack in Sunday's game that led to a Cardinals touchdown. He'll look to continue the superb play against the Broncos in Week 7.

Jones was dominant in 2017, recording 17.0 sacks on the year. He's recorded 11.0 sacks or more each of the last three years and appears likely to resume his run of success. His ability to pressure the passer will be vital to Arizona's chances in Week 2 against the Rams.
Jones is expected to serve more as a defensive end under new head coach Steve Wilks, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
In his last stop with the Panthers, Wilks operated a 4-3 defense, from which he aims to deploy Jones and fellow pass rusher Markus Golden (knee) as defensive ends. Jones has experience at the position, racking up 36 sacks in four seasons with the Patriots. Since he was dealt to the Cardinals in 2016, he's wreaked havoc as a strong-side linebacker, notably leading the entire NFL with 17 sacks last season. As he and his teammates reported for the offseason program Tuesday, Jones relayed that he currently weighs 265 pounds but is willing to bulk up further if Wilks wants him to do so, per Kyle Odegard of the team's official site. It remains to be seen if additional pounds will hinder Jones' chances of retaining the sack title this year.
Jones compiled an NFL-high 17 sacks in 16 games during the 2017 season.
Upon joining the Cardinals in 2016, Jones (11 sacks) combined with Markus Golden (12.5) to spur a pass-rush resurgence, guiding the team to a league-leading 48 by the end of the campaign. One of ensuing benefits was a five-year, $83 million contract in the offseason, but Jones lost his running mate Week 4 of this season, when Golden suffered a torn ACL. From that point forward, Jones was a one-man show, failing to fell an opposing QB in a given game just twice in 12 chances. Over the last five years, he's established himself as one of the NFL's premier pass rushers with double-digit sacks in four of them.
Jones had two tackles (both solo) and a sack in Sunday's 20-15 loss to the Redskins.
Jones has a sack in four consecutive games and has gone without one only twice the season. Sunday's takedown brings the 27-year-old's season total to 15, which currently leads the NFL.
Jones compiled five solo tackles and one sack Sunday against the Titans.
Jones played all 60 possible defensive snaps Sunday and was able to extend his career high in sacks to 14. Not only are his numbers solid for the season, but he has been held without a sack only two times through 13 games, giving him enough consistency to be a fantastic IDP option.
