Za’Darius Smith Destroyed the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football



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.

    Just another reason for these High School Five Star kids to consider Playing for the University of Kentucky Football Program. Mark Stoops and our Staff can flat out take kids to another level that very few can. It’s showing in the NFL And has Been for a few years now. I love my Kentucky Football team and everyone involved with it. Lol.

    I, and all of you Football fans have spent a lot of years paying our dues, we can now be more than just proud of our team for playing hard. I’m more than happy right now with the way it’s going, I just can’t wait to see how far we can go. I believe it’s going to be farther than most all of us ever thought we could just a few years ago. Wooooo. Go Cats.

    Ohh yeah, lol, Helll of a job Big Z!! Man he’s getting better and better. All our guys are doing great.
