Jordan became the 38th player in NFL history to reach 100 career sacks and joined Rickey Jackson as the only two players in franchise history to reach the milestone. Jordan recorded two sacks, five solo tackles, two for loss and a forced fumble during Sunday night’s shutout of the defending Super Bowl champions.
Jordan now sits tied for 34th all-time in career sacks with 100.5. Week 15 marked his 23rd multi-sack game since he became a Saint in 2011.
