Arizona Cardinals: 5 bold predictions for 2020
Chandler Jones will get 20 sacks
We were really rooting for Chandler Jones to win the sack title last season. Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Shaq Barrett had other ideas however. He had three sacks in the final week against the Atlanta Falcons in 2019 to take the sack title with 19.5 sacks.
Jones did not record a sack in week 17 against the Los Angeles Rams and finished half a sack behind Barrett. You knew he was disappointed. Expect that to change in 2020.
Jones not only will win the sack title, but he will end up with at least 20 sacks. If Jones ever says he isn’t thinking about it, he’s probably not telling the whole truth.
He doesn’t need to come out and talk about it. He just needs to go out and get the job done, starting in week one. Jones had two sacks last season in the two games against San Francisco.
