2. Kayvon Thibodeaux has All-American performance

I’ve been really impressed with what I’ve seen from Kayvon Thibodeaux since he’s returned from his early-season injury, putting up 23 tackles and three sacks in 3.5 games. He looks like that All-American defensive end and No. 1 overall draft prospect we all expected before the season began, and then some.

Kayvon’s dominance will carry over into this huge rivalry battle with Washington.

This is the first time Thibodeaux will face Washington in his career and he’s going to feed off the hostile crowd and eat against that offensive line en route to three sacks.

Yes, I said three sacks.

The last time I predicted three sacks for Kayvon, he ended up with two, on paper. He actually had a full sack and then two half-sacks — so he was technically still involved in three. I see that happening again here.

Thibodeaux has an All-American performance with eight tackles, four for loss, and three sacks.
