Aaron Donald once again leads all DTs in pass-rush win rate for Week 1

Surprise, surprise. Aaron Donald has been the best pass-rushing defensive tackle in the NFL through Week 1. Seth Walder of ESPN shared a list of the top-10 defensive tackles in pass-rush win rate from the first week of the season – pending Monday night football between the Broncos and Seahawks – and Donald is No. 1 once again.

He had a win rate of 27.8% against the Bills, higher than any other defensive tackle this week. No other Rams player cracked the top 10, but at least Donald is picking up right where he left off.

Donald may not have stuffed the stat sheet against the Bills, recording just two tackles, one sack and one QB hit, but he was beating the man across from him. It’s just that Josh Allen was getting the ball out so quickly that Donald couldn’t get home.

When looking at the edge rusher stats, no Rams player cracked the top 10 at that spot. However, two former Rams did: Von Miller, who dominated against Los Angeles on Thursday night, and Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, who left in free agency this year. The Rams sure could use one of those guys right now after struggling to pressure Allen in Week 1.
