ESPN stat shows Texans DE Will Anderson dominated against the Ravens

Will Anderson demonstrated in Week 1 why the Houston Texans had to make a deal with the Arizona Cardinals to draft the defensive end No. 3 overall.

According to statistics posted by ESPN’s Seth Walder, Anderson tied with Seattle Seahawks linebacker Darrell Taylor for the fourth-highest pass rush win rate with a game to go in Week 1.

The former Alabama product generated six combined tackles, 1.0 sack, a tackle for loss, and two quarterback hits in the Texans’ 25-9 loss to the Baltimore Ravens Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium.

Despite the loss, Anderson admitted after the game he relished getting a chance to begin his NFL career.

“Yeah, it was fun,” said Anderson. “You know, I took in every moment, and I think the team did a really good job. Of course, we made some mistakes, but we just have to keep learning and getting better.”

Anderson was also influential in Lamar Jackson’s interception early in second quarter.
