The Arizona Cardinals topped the NFL in 2020, posting a league-low hurry probability of just 7.2%. That’s a testament to both their offensive line and offensive coordinator, who provided quarterback Kyler Murray plenty of time to operate. On the exact opposite end of that spectrum are the New York Giants, who allowed a hurry probability of 21.5% in 2020 — 2.4% more than the next closest team (Miami Dolphins, 19.1%).
The New York Giants knew they were getting one of the most prolific inside linebackers in the game when they inked Green Bay’s Blake Martinez to a three-year, $30.75 million deal before the 2020 season. Martinez came through for the Giants immediately with 151 tackles (75 solo), good enough for fourth in the NFL. Martinez added three sacks, defensed five passes, intercepting one, and forced two fumbles.
