He’s only played seven games as a rookie in the NFL, but former Kentucky defensive end Josh Allen is already making his mark in the Jacksonville Jaguars history book.
With a third-quarter sack on Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton, Allen became tied for the most sacks through the first seven games to start a season by a single Jaguars player. The sack on Dalton became the fifth of Allen’s young and budding career and the third straight game in which he’s registered a sack.
Defensive tackle John Henderson – a two-time Pro Bowler – also recorded five sacks through the Jaguars’ first seven games back in 2002.

Allen also recorded a tackle for loss in the Jaguars 27-17 victory over the winless Bengals squad. Jacksonville moves to 3-4 on the season and the seventh overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft continues to impress during his first year in the pros.
Can somebody, ANYBODY, explain to me how a quarterback from Duke was picked ahead of this dude?
