Here's a quick look back at Bruce Irvin's sacks from 2015.

Week 2 v GB

2nd Q, 1:16, 1-10-GB 20 , (Shotgun) A.Rodgers sacked at GB 13 for -7 yards (B.Irvin).

Speed to the outside. Gives a quick inside jab step and then explodes to the outside, clearing himself with a short quick rip move.

Week 3 v CHI (1/2 sack)

3rd Q, 13:38, 3-8-CHI 43, (Shotgun) J.Clausen sacked at CHI 34 for -9 yards (sack split by B.Irvin and B.Wagner).

Speed to the outside. Gives a dip to the inside and then bursts to the outside and around. The Bears' LT gets a little bit of a hold (not called) and Irvin forces Clausen to step up into Bobby Wagner.

Week 6 v CAR (x2)

1st Q, 12:43, 3-4-CAR 40, (Shotgun) C.Newton sacked at CAR 32 for -8 yards (B.Irvin).

Outside speed on Michael Oher. As Oher slides out, Irvin brushes Oher's hands away and then turns the corner. Closes on Cam Newton with explosion.

4th Q, 1:29, 1-10-SEA 40, (No Huddle, Shotgun) C.Newton sacked at SEA 49 for -9 yards (B.Irvin).

Quick, shifty feet on the stunt inside. T/E Stunt with the Tackle running the pick. Irvin hesitates and then draws laterally to clear the LG. Once he gets space, Irvin explodes up into the pocket.

Week 8 v DAL

4th Q, :50, 3-10-DAL 35, (Shotgun) M.Cassel sacked at DAL 29 for -6 yards (B.Irvin).

Initially stoned and mirrored well by LT Tyron Smith, but second effort (and good coverage) gives Irvin a little space. He's able to burst upfield and use his pure speed to get around Smith. Then he chases down Matt Cassell, like he's standing still.

Week 13 v MIN

3rd Q, 4:43, 3-30-MIN 26, (Shotgun) T.Bridgewater sacked at MIN 18 for -8 yards (B.Irvin). FUMBLES (B.Irvin), recovered by MIN-M.Asiata at MIN 18.

Again, an outside move with a fake to the inside to get the LT to set his feet. Once Matt Kalil's feet stop, Irvin explodes to the outside and clears with a finishing quick rip move. As he comes around, Irvin swats the ball out of Teddy's hand for the forced fumble.

Wild Card v MIN (1/2 sack)

4th Q, 3:05, 2-10-MIN 32 (Shotgun) T.Bridgewater sacked at MIN 26 for -6 yards (sack split by B.Irvin and K.Wright).

Stunting inside, he's picked up by the Center. Maintains rush lane integrity and when the pocket collapses and Teddy steps up, Irvin (and KJ Wright) are there to make the sack.

And now let's ask Ken Norton Jr how he feels about this acquisition of his former pupil.
