Rams All-Pro defensive tackle Aaron Donald can wreck any blocking scheme, no matter what’s thrown at him, and he proved that during Sunday’s game against the Bills.
Buffalo boasts one of the better offensive lines in the NFL, but none of that matters when Donald is on the other side of the ball. He can beat the best linemen in the NFL, and he also destroys double-teams.
On Sunday, it was Bills quarterback Josh Allen who he destroyed — multiple times, actually. Donald did what he always does, as he beat his man and got pressure on Allen on one particular play in the second half of the game. He finished it off by throwing Allen to the ground, although he was whistled for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty as a result.
And then he did it again, not too long after, causing a fumble, which he pounced on.
Donald is in the Defensive Player of the Year discussion every year for good reason.
