In his seven seasons with the team, he’s been a force that offensive lines can’t seem to handle.
While his time in the NFL has seen him performing at an elite level, it’s in 2022 where he’s dominating in one statistic.

With him well ahead of his competition, he’s showing why he’s a dominating force on the defensive line for the Chiefs.
However, this has always been the case with him, as his career is full of elite statistics at his position.
His 15.5 sacks in 2018 put him in an elite group with sacks by a defensive tackle.
His two career interceptions during his first three years in the league were also elite for him being a defensive tackle.
While some might feel he’s fallen off since his start with the Chiefs, he still shows why he’s an elite player.
His pressures on the quarterback this season are helping his defense make huge plays.
Without him, their defense is weaker.
His pressure on quarterbacks is leading the Chiefs to rank fourth in sacks (42) this season.
Because of this, the Chiefs are sitting pretty in the AFC West once again.
With the playoffs quickly approaching, playoff teams will need to game plan for him if they want to win.
