According to the Jacksonville Jaguars, his five sacks are tied with John Henderson (2002) for the most by a Jaguars player through seven career games in franchise history.
The former Kentucky Wildcat is also the first Jaguars rookie since Yannick Ngakoue in 2016 to post a sack in three straight games. His five sacks are also the fifth-most by a rookie in franchise history.
"I got a great team and a great defensive line," said Allen. "I got veteran players I get to play with and they get all the credit. Can't ask for a better group than these dudes. I love going to war with them every day."
The Jaguars (3-4) host the Jets on October 27.
