Bruce Irvin, DE, Panthers
Irvin had gone 3 games without a sack, but he broke through for 1 in Sunday’s narrow loss at New Orleans. Irvin had been getting into backfields before Week 12, though. He logged 3 QB hits in the Week 11 loss to Atlanta and entered Sunday’s game with 9 through his 7 games.
Week 13 brings a home date with Washington, which has taken 3+ sacks in 5 straight games -- averaging 4 per game over that span.
