Derrick Thomas is the reason I fell in love with Chiefs football. The first game I remember is the infamous, record-setting 7-sack game. Watching him come around the edge on a pass rush is still my favorite football to watch, nearly 20 years after his last snap.
DT played in 169 games throughout the course of his career. Between them all, he amassed 601 tackles, 126.5 sacks (17th all time), 3 safeties (4th all time) and 41 forced fumbles (9th all time). In them, some stand out as being truly incredible performances which helped Thomas ascend to one of the greatest players in NFL history—and a NFL Hall of Famer.
