After further review of the Houston video, Elias has changed the sack originally given to Frostee Rucker to John Abraham — on the 23-yard loss, it was determined Texans QB Case Keenum kept his feet after the initial contact from Rucker, only to collapse as Abraham bore in. Abraham already had two sacks in the game, and his now-three-sack game has implications.
– Since Darnell Dockett had a three-sack game in New Orleans earlier this season, it marks the first time for the franchise that two different Cardinals had three sacks in a game in a season since 1987, when Curtis Greer and Freddie Joe Nunn did it.
– It is Abraham’s ninth game in his career when he had three sacks. Only Hall of Famers Lawrence Taylor (who did it 12 times), Reggie White (12) and Derrick Thomas (10) accomplished a feat more often.
– That gives Abraham six sacks on the season and six in his last three games. That is a franchise record for a three-game span. Greer held the previous mark of 5.5.
– Abraham now has 128 sacks in his career, tying Hall of Famer Rickey Jackson for 11th on the all-time list.
