Joey Bosa goes off for monster performance and career day in loss to Bills
Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa put Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen to the turf three times on Sunday.
The trio of sacks is a career game-high for Bosa, the Chargers third-overall pick from the 2016 draft.
The Bills would end up winning the game, 27-17, but Bosa finished up with eight tackles, seven solo, and six for-loss to go along with his three sacks. His sack total went from 4.5 sacks on the season to 7.5.
Along with his sack and tackle numbers, Bosa added a fumble recovery and was able to hit Allen five times in the game. Though the Chargers wound up with the loss, it was undoubtedly one of the best performances by a defensive lineman in the NFL this season.
Bosa signed a five-year, $135-million extension to his contract in August, guaranteeing the former Ohio State standout $102 million – a league record for a defensive player.
Over his five-year career with Los Angeles, Bosa has 44.5 sacks and 162 tackles.
Bosa and the Chargers will host the New England Patriots next Sunday, Dec. 6 at 4:25 ET.
