Javon Hargrave has found his groove through three weeks of his second season with the Eagles, and as the Birds start preparation to face the Chiefs, the game-wrecking defensive tackle is on a historic pace.

According to Eagles public relations guru, John Gonoude, Hargrave is the first NFL defensive tackle since Warren Sapp in 1999, to log 15+ tackles and 4.0+ sacks in the first 3 games of the season.

That season, Sapp logged 4 passes defended, 4 forced fumbles, 12.5 sacks, 41 total tackles, and 13 tackles for loss on the way to being named All-Pro and Defensive Player of the Year.

We’ve previously predicted that Hargrave would smash the 23 tackles for loss that T.J. Watt recorded in 2020 to lead the league, and through three games, Hargrave is on pace for 27.5 tackles for loss, and almost 21 sacks.
