Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell set a new franchise record for sacks in a season during Sunday’s matchup against the Indianapolis Colts.

Campbell set the new mark during the first quarter when he sacked Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett, giving him 12½ on the season. That breaks the previous team record of 12, set by Tony Brackens in 1999.

The 6-foot-8, 300-pound Campbell has been solid all season, his first in Jacksonville.

The former Arizona Cardinals standout signed a four-year, $60 million contract in April that included $30 million guaranteed.

He’s one of the main reasons the Jaguars are in the playoff mix. The league’s best free-agent acquisition in 2017, Campbell sets the tone for the NFL’s top-ranked defense.
