Playing in the shadows of Peyton Manning and now Andrew Luck, Robert Mathis has quietly put together a great career. The former Alabama A&M star has had a coming out party this year, however, as he has held the league lead in sacks for most of the season.

Mathis added another sack in today’s 25-3 win over Houston. The sack gave him 16.5 for the season, which breaks Dwight Freeney’s club marks for both single-season and career (107.5).
