YO, ADRIAN: Atlanta defensive end ADRIAN CLAYBORN recorded a franchise-record six sacks, forced two fumbles and a fumble recovered in the Falcons’ 27-7 win against Dallas last week.

Clayborn’s six sacks are tied for the second-most in a game since the individual sack became an official statistic in 1982. Only Pro Football Hall of Famer DERRICK THOMAS (seven on November 11, 1990) had more sacks in a single game.

With 2.5 sacks at Seattle on Monday Night Football, Clayborn would surpass Thomas (eight) for the most sacks in a two-game span in a single season since the individual sack became an official statistic in 1982.
