If the Washington Football Team wishes to pull off a big upset against the Buffalo Bills this weekend, defensive end Montez Sweat will need to have a big game.
The third-year defensive end from Mississippi State has a sack in each of the first two games this season, and he'll look to continue that streak facing Bills' quarterback Josh Allen.
Sweat is part of a dynamic front seven with threats all across the line including Chase Young and Jonathan Allen. Sweat makes the most of his opportunities and fulfills his role well, making him a necessary part of WFT's formidable defense.
If Sweat continues along this trajectory, he could cement himself among some elite company as one of the best pass-rushers in Washington history. He may not get as much attention or praise as some of his teammates, but it does not take away the value he brings.
