During his first five NFL seasons, New Orleans Saints defensive tackle Nick Fairley rarely had a two-game stretch as productive as the one he just finished.

Fairley, a first-round pick in 2011, had seven tackles, two for loss, 1.5 sacks and two quarterback hits against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3. For an encore, he had three tackles, one for loss, 1.5 sacks and a ridiculous six quarterback hits against the San Diego Chargers last Sunday.

All told, that's 10 tackles, three for loss, three sacks and eight quarterback hits in two games. Perhaps the best comparison for Fairley was Weeks 10 and 11 of 2012 when he was with the Detroit Lions and had 11 tackles, five for loss, three sacks, a forced fumble and four quarterback hits.
