Darnell Dockett Sacks Ben Roethlisberger In Super Bowl XLIII

Darnell Dockett Sacks Ben Roethlisberger In Super Bowl XLIII

Let’s clear some of the fog on Super Bowl sacks. Hidden in yesterday’s post – all-time (or career) Super Bowl sack leaders – is today’s whole list, another led by the Pittsburgh SteelersL.C. Greenwood.

Greenwood sacked Roger Staubach four times in Super Bowl X.

More recently, the Arizona CardinalsDarnell Dockett recorded three sacks in Super Bowl XLIII – in a losing effort. He’s tied with two Green Bay Packer Hall of Famers, Willie Davis and Reggie White.

Finally, there’s Tom Keating‘s 2.5 in II.

Another 24 players had two sacks in the Big Game. You can see them all at today’s source: pro-football-reference.com, where I punched this query into the play index.
