In 2001, Michael Strahan set a record that is seemingly impossible to break as he recorded 22.5 sacks on the year. However, Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap is looking to get after that record in the 2016 season.
If there was ever a time for him to break the record, it would be this year after he nailed down a career-high 13.5 sacks during the 2015 season.
“Along with the team goals, you’ve got to have your personal goals that will help you obtain the team goal,” Dunlap told ESPN. “My personal goals is to get that sack title at the end of the season, one, and then two, to get Strahan’s record.”
Not only did Carlos Dunlap lock down a career-high number, he also set the Bengals’ single-season record for sacks and made his first Pro Bowl. It certainly looks like he could have a great season on his hands.
