Stagdsp mentioned this a few minutes ago but I think it deserves a little more attention.
I think we all know the result of that matchup. Hali had the best game of his career with 9 tackles, 2 forced fumbles and 3 sacks extending his team leading 6.5 sacks.
"He's had a lot of almost-sacks and a lot of pressures," Clady said. "I think he's one of the best in the game right now."
High praise from one of the NFL's best tackles. Hali was matched up on a tight end a few times (bad idea) but he gave Clady hell for much of the game.
As Doug Farrar of Yahoo! Sports notes, Hali's day was the best sack performance since (you guessed it) Jared Allen in 2005.
