Jordan was also treated to a home win, as the Pelicans went on to thump the Denver Nuggets by a score of 122-107.
It’s hardly the only fun Jordan has had this year, either.
Through eight games, Jordan has logged 28 tackles, eight sacks and a fumble recovery, playing a pivotal role in the Saints’ 7-1 start.
The 30-year-old, who played his collegiate football at the University of California, was originally selected by New Orleans in the first round (24th pick overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft.
He played in all 16 games during his rookie campaign, but his impact was minimal, as he finished with 31 tackles and one sack. The following year, Jordan began to break out, posting 67 tackles, eight sacks, three forced fumbles and a couple of fumble recoveries.
Jordan then proceeded to make his first Pro Bowl in 2013, racking up 47 tackles, 12.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
Overall, Jordan has made four Pro Bowl appearances, most recently doing so last year after totaling 49 tackles, 12 sacks, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and six passes defended.
Jordan also earned a First-Team All-Pro selection in 2017 after registering 62 tackles, 13 sacks, and 11 passes defended.
We are used to seeing the Saints’ high-octane offense power them to wins, but this season, their defense has actually been a huge reason for their success for a change, as New Orleans’ defense ranks sixth in the NFL.
The Saints are on their bye week.
