Crosby is off to a fantastic start this season, recording five sacks and eight tackles for a loss. According to Pro Football Focus, he has the second-most pressures in the NFL, only behind Aidan Hutchinson.
The Raiders are off to a bit of a slow start this year, but the defense has looked much improved compared to last season. Crosby deserves a lot of credit there for his constant pressure and ability to stop the run.
