This season, Mack finished with 77 tackles (56 solo), 11 sacks, five forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, one interception and four passes defensed on the way to earning his second consecutive Pro Bowl selection. Mack was also named to the Associated Press All-Pro Team and the PFWA All-NFL Team this year.

For someone who’s already received a multitude of accolades this season, most notably the title of Defensive Player of the Year, it’s hard to deny that defensive end is one of the best at his position in the NFL. The Oakland Raiders edge rusher has wreaked havoc on offensive lines since entering the league in 2014, and was recently named Pro Football Focus’ best overall edge rusher from the 2016 season.

It was just minutes after the Oakland Raiders had beaten the Carolina Panthers, and Jihad Ward sat quietly at his locker.

With his eye black smeared all over his cheeks, and nfl jersey raiders his ankles still taped, the rookie defensive end sat silently, unable to verbalize what he had just seen transpire over the past four quarters.

Over the past three hours, Ward had watched a defensive clinic, and the teacher of the class was none other than his teammate Khalil Mack.

Mack ran wild against the Carolina Panthers en route to the Raiders 35-32 win, showcasing his versatility all afternoon long, securing his first career interception in the waning moments of the first half, and then cementing the Raiders ninth win of the season with a strip sack of Cam Newton.

In short, the Raiders dynamic edge rusher was dominant Sunday afternoon, so dominant in fact, that his rookie teammate had a hard time describing the type of feat he had just witnessed.

Mack – who was also named first-team All-Pro, at not one, but two positions last season – has totaled 11 sacks in 2016, as well as 77 total tackles, one interception, four passes defensed, five forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, and one touchdown.

Khalil Mack and Kelechi Osemele earned Associated Press First-Team All-Pro honors at season’s end, and now the pair of Oakland Raiders have another accolade to add to their résumés, as they both have been named to the Sporting News 2016 All-Pro Team.

Mack’s postseason performance against the Texans was one of his weakest pass-rushing displays of the year, but he still notched a pair of hurries and was a monster in the run game, with eight defensive stops to his name in just one game.

What often separates the very best pass-rushers is game-defining impact plays, and Mack had more than one of those over the season. In fact, he recorded more than one of those in a single game, proving to be the difference between the Raiders winning or losing back in Week 12 against the Panthers, when he managed to intercept Carolina QB Cam Newton on a quick screen pass, and later record a strip-sack to force a fumble and seal the win.”
