Josh Allen ties Jaguars rookie record in 10th career NFL game
Josh Allen has tied a Jacksonville Jaguars rookie record — in only 10 games, no less.
On Sunday, Allen notched his eighth sack of the season, matching the most by a Jaguars player in their rookie campaign. It was one of the former Kentucky linebacker’s two tackles in Jacksonville’s 33-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
Yannick Ngakoue also had eight sacks in his rookie season for the Jaguars in 2016.
Allen has 27 tackles and two forced fumbles in his first NFL season. After playing at Kentucky from 2015-18, he was selected by the Jaguars with the No. 7 overall pick in the first round of the 2019 draft.

In only 10 games, Allen is becoming a top contributor for Jacksonville’s defense. He notched his first two career sacks in a Week 3 win over the Tennessee Titans, and he had another two-sack game in a win over the New York Jets in Week 8. The latter completed a streak of four consecutive games with a sack for Allen.
With six games remaining in the regular season, Allen should have no trouble breaking and extending the Jags’ rookie sack record. Next week, Allen and the Jaguars play a road matchup against the Titans on Sunday at 4:05 p.m. ET on CBS.
