As a second round selection in the 2018 NFL Draft, Tyquan Lewis envisioned big things as an Indianapolis Colt. An toe injury put those plans on hold, delaying Lewis debut until November, but Sunday, in just his sixth NFL game, the Ohio Stater product had a coming out party.
Lewis recorded the first two sacks of his pro career, helping the Colts defense shut out the Dallas Cowboys, 23-0 in Indianapolis.
The first sack came in the waning minutes of the first quarter and effectively killed a Cowboys drive that had reached midfield:
His second sack came a quarter later, again killing a Cowboys drive that had advanced to Colts territory:
“I don’t pride myself on pressures because nobody remembers that that, so you just gotta make sacks,” Lewis said earlier this season.
Lewis' former linemate at Ohio State, Sam Hubbard, also turned in a two-sack performance Sunday, recording his sixth and seventh sack of the season in the Bengals' 30-16 win over the Raiders.
