What happens when you lineup the hottest defensive end in the NFL with one of the NFL's best left tackles? We'll find out on Sunday. The battle that is set to begin at kickoff on Sunday between Vikings DE Everson Griffen and Redskins LT Trent Williams is the subject of this week's Ticketmaster Hot Matchup.
No NFL player has more sacks in the last 10 regular season games than Griffen, who has 10.5 over that span. In 2014, Griffen leads the Vikings and is third in the NFL with 8.0 sacks and he has a sack in four consecutive games. His 8.0 sacks through the first eight games is already a career high, and Griffen also leads the Vikings in quarterback hurries (26) and tackles for loss (9.0).
