Arizona Cardinals: Top 5 pass rushers they’ll face in 2016
By Scott Allen
Michael Bennett, Seattle Seahawks
Bennett was recently listed by NFL Network as the 59th best player in 2016 in their Top 100 Players special. There is a reason for that. The man is a beast.
The Cardinals must deal with this beast twice in 2016. The first meeting will be on Sunday Night Football in Arizona on October 23rd. The second meeting will be on Christmas Eve on Saturday December 24th.
Bennett had 52 tackles with 10 sacks in 2015. He was credited with 0.5 sacks in the two games against the Cardinals in 2015.
The eight-year pro will turn 31 in November. Don’t let that fool you though. Bennett will still be someone to keep your eye on. Seattle’s defense overall is tough to begin with but keeping Bennett away from Palmer should be the first plan of action.
