For all of the struggles that the Chicago Bears have endured this season, it hasn’t been due to their defense, which again is a top-five defense in the NFL.

One of the reasons for Chicago’s defensive success remains star edge rusher Khalil Mack, who leads the Bears with 6.5 sacks this season. But his contributions have always gone beyond the box score. And his performance hasn’t gone unnoticed by the folks at Pro Football Focus.

Mack is PFF’s second-highest graded edge defender through Week 11 this season. He nabbed a 91.6 grade that ranks just behind Pittsburgh Steelers edge rusher T.J. Watt at 92.1.
