[tps_title]6 – Ziggy Ansah is not human[/tps_title]

Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah

Ladies and Gentlemen, Ezekiel ‘Ziggy’ Ansah is not human. The 26-year-old defensive end has emerged as one of the most feared defensive players in the NFL and he is just getting started. Ansah racked up 14.5 sacks in 2015 which was good for 3rd in the NFL. In addition to the sacks, the defensive end out of BYU also forced four fumbles and recovered two. If you think Ansah was good this season, just wait, it is just a matter of time before he wins an NFL defensive player of the year award. He is that good.

Stafford completed 70% of his passes and threw 19 touchdowns and only two interceptions. The Lions signal-caller proved that with the right man calling the plays, he can be a very successful quarterback in the NFL.
