First NFL Playoff Sack Prior to Donald being drafted by St. Louis, the Rams struggled to make it to the playoffs. After the additions from the 2014 draft and a young offensive-minded coach, the Rams began to turn their fortunes around, and by 2017 they were playoff bound. Although the Rams finished 11 – 5 (good for first place in the NFCWest division), they came up short in their wildcardmatchup against the Atlanta Falcons, who beat the Rams 26 – 13. Donald was able to team up with fellow defensive tackle Michael Brockers for a second quarter sack of Atlanta’s QB Matt
Ryan for a seven-yard loss. The shared sack was the first one (0.5 actually!) of what has already been dozens more for the Rams star.
Donald’s constant pressure on the quarterback pays off with a half-credited sack of Atlanta’s Matt Ryan in Donald’s first playoff appearance, January 6, 2018 [the sack begins at the 2:57 min. mark].
