Watch Josh Uche flatten Dolphins LT en route to awesome sack originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Josh Uche could be a serious problem this season. Just ask Liam Eichenberg.

Uche tallied his first sack of the 2021 season late in the first half of the New England Patriots' Week 1 matchup with the Miami Dolphins, and he did so in style. The Patriots linebacker came in hot off the right side and steamrolled Eichenberg, the Dolphins' left tackle, before taking down quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

Uche may have gotten a little help from Miami's left guard, who appeared to clip Eichenberg with his foot. But the 6-foot-3, 245-pound Uche still showcased some impressive power and speed to blow past the 6-foot-5, 310-pound Eichenberg, then finish the play with a clutch sack of Tagovailoa on third down that forced a Dolphins field goal attempt before the half.

Uche appears poised for a breakout season after a strong showing in training camp and the preseason. The Patriots' 60th overall pick out of Michigan in the 2020 NFL Draft missed seven games as a rookie due to a foot injury but clearly looks healthy as he begins his sophomore campaign with a bang.
