Matthews had 43 tackles (29 solo) and 3.5 sacks over 16 games in 2018.
Matthews could have had a couple more sacks if not for some questionable roughing-the-passer penalties early on, but regardless, he still finished with the fewest sacks of his 10-year career. Matthews will be a free agent in 2019, and it remains to be seen if the Packers will try to bring him back, or if he will spend next season playing with a team other than the one who drafted him in 2009.
Matthews recorded two tackles (one solo), a sack and a forced fumble across 49 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Bears.
Matthews now has a sack in back-to-back contests, bringing his season total to four -- which is on pace for a career-low. The veteran will look to continue his sack streak against the Jets on Sunday.
Matthews recorded three solo tackles, including a sack, in Sunday's win over the Falcons.
Matthews had been held without a sack in five-straight games entering Sunday. The sack gives him 3.5 on the season, on pace for the fewest of his career. That being said, he's right on track with his tackle numbers from years past, currently with 39 through 13 games.
Matthews had five tackles (three solo) and a forced fumble in Thursday's loss at Seattle.
Matthews jarred the ball loose from running back Chris Carson on the first play from scrimmage leading the a Packers touchdown, but was otherwise fairly quiet. The 32-year-old has only 2.5 sacks despite playing in all 10 games so far in 2018.
Matthews recorded four tackles (two solo) and a sack across 37 defensive snaps in Monday's win over the 49ers.
Matthews hasn't seen over 45 defensive snaps since Week 2 but the veteran continues to tally sacks despite decreased reps. The upcoming bye week will give Matthews a good opportunity to rest up and heal some nagging injuries before the Packers head to Los Angeles to face the Rams in Week 8.
