Sorensen totaled only three tackles (two solo) during the team's wild-card loss to the Titans on Saturday, but finished the regular season with an impressive 89 tackles (67 solo), 1.5 sacks and one interception.
Sorensen broke out in 2016 with the Chiefs and followed that up with another spectacular display in 2017. Although his turnover numbers (three interceptions, two forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries) from last season were difficult and unrealistic to replicate, the fourth-year pro improved his tackling totals by a wide margin (up to 89 from 63). With Eric Berry (Achilles) set to return in 2018 and Ron Parker also back, it's unclear how prevalent Sorensen's role in the defense will be next season.
Sorensen totaled 11 tackles (six solo) during Sunday's 38-31 loss to the Jets.
Sorensen is well on his way to 100 tackles during 2017, needing 22 more over the final three weeks to reach triple digits. Sunday's effort went a long way toward reaching the milestone, and he's pushed his way firmly onto the IDP radar at this point.
Sorensen notched a sack and seven tackles (all solo) during Week 12 against the Bills.
Although Sorensen has only produced one interception and 1.5 sacks this season, he has also displayed a willingness to stick his nose in and make a tackle. Through 12 weeks (11 games), the fourth-year safety has totaled 67 tackles (51 solo) and figures to near the 100-tackle mark as the season winds down if he stays healthy.
Sorensen recorded his first pick of the season in Sunday's 12-9 overtime loss to the Giants.
Sorensen added six tackles (five solo) to go along with his interception. The 27-year-old picked off Eli Manning midway through the first quarter. He played all but one snap on defense.
Sorensen racked up nine tackles (six solo), including two for a loss Thursday against the Raiders.
Sorensen has proven effective since replacing Eric Berry (Achilles) in the starting lineup, collecting 41 tackles (30 solo) over the first seven contests this season to put him on pace for more than 90 on the season. He will attempt to keep things rolling next week against the Broncos.
