New, comments
Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

This week's nominees for the Castrol EDGE Clutch Performer of the Week are out and the list of nominees has no more deserving candidate than Khalil Mack. Not only did Mack have five sacks in the Raiders 15-12 win over the Broncos, he had all five of them in the second half and three in the fourth quarter alone.

The Broncos had eight possessions in the second half with none leading to points on the board. Mack had a huge play on all but one of them. Here is what Mack did on those possessions:

1: Sack (-10)
3. Tackle for loss (-1)
4. Strip sack safety
5. Sack (-2)
6. Drew holding penalty (-7), QB hurry incompletion
7. Sack (-9)
8. Sack (-8).

That's as CLUTCH as it gets.
