Sam Hubbard leads all NFL edge rushers in stopping the run

The Cincinnati Bengals defense has improved dramatically with Lou Anarumo calling the shots and a few key difference makers that the Bengals have picked up along the way.

However, one of the highlights of the defense has been defensive end Sam Hubbard who, according to the Bengals official Twitter account, has had a run-stop win rate of 33.4 percent, which is the highest of any edge rusher in the NFL.

Last season in 15 games, Hubbard had 6.5 sacks and one forced fumble to go with 34 solo tackles.

Over his career, Hubbard has been a bright spot with the Bengals when things weren’t going as well, and a leader on an AFC Championship defense recently, proving that he very well could be the best edge rusher in the league against the run.
