Donald has been living in offensive backfields all year and seems almost impossible to stop at this point in the season. If that just so happens to hold true, he could become the first defensive tackle in the history of the NFL to lead the league in sacks, quarterback hits and tackles for loss.

He would be the only defensive tackle in recorded history to do that in a season.
It's incredible to think about, right? Especially when you take into account all of the Hall-of-Fame interior linemen that have graced the league.
With 14.5 sacks, 20 tackles for loss and 28 quarterback hits already to his name, Donald has a pretty sizeable lead over the next best player on each leaderboard (Danielle Hunter with 11.5 sacks and 16.5 TFL, Dee Ford with 22 QB hits).
