Za’Darius Smith will give Kirk Cousins nightmares for years to come.
The former Kentucky Wildcat put on a show for a national television audience on Monday Night Football, pushing the Packers to a 23-10 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Big Z had so much fun sacking the Vikings’ quarterback, he did it over and over again. Smith finished the game with seven tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks. He absolutely wrecked the Vikings from start to finish.

Smith now has 13.5 sacks in 2019, five more than his previous career-high. He is ranked sixth in the NFL in sacks, just ahead of Bud Dupree (11th with 10.5 sacks) and Josh Allen (13th with 10 sacks).
The victory secured an NFC North title for the Packers. Za’Darius was emotional after bringing the division crown back to Green Bay.

After crying with Za’Darius, laugh with him. Nobody celebrates sacks better than the former Wildcat.
