Cam Jordan was on his way to another highlight.

The play was nothing new to the defensive end. Jordan has used offensive tackles, running backs and whoever else has gotten in his way as objects to knock over quarterbacks. Packers right tackle Billy Turner was simply on his way to joining that list.
