Tamba Hali Is Your NFL Sack Leader With One Half To Play

Kansas City Chiefs lB Tamba Hali is your NFL sack king with one half left in the Chiefs Week 17 game against the Oakland Raiders. Hali has 2.5 sacks on the day.

Hali came into the game with 12 sacks, two behind the NFL leader, Cameron Wake, at 14. Hali now has 2.5 on the day, giving him 14.5 on the season. Through the first half of the Dolphins game, Wake has zero sacks. Hali was given a half-sack credit on a sack along with Glenn Dorsey.

Hali very well could win the NFL's sack title...without making the Pro Bowl. Perhaps this would finally be enough recognition for Hali to be considered one of the best pass rushers in the game. 

The Chiefs trail the Raiders 10-3 in the second half. 

Falcons' John Abraham was at 13 entering this game and has no sacks. Jason Babin, Clay Matthews and DeMarcus Ware are all involved as well and they play later this afternoon.
