Fox recorded two solo tackles, both of which were sacks, in the Chargers' 20-17 loss to the Cowboys on Monday Night Football.
Fox extended his sack streak to four consecutive games Monday, taking down quarterback Dak Prescott twice in the loss. The defensive end has now compiled five sacks on the season, all of which have come during his streak. Fox will look to make it five straight in Week 7 versus the Chiefs.
Fox agreed to a new two-year contract with the Chargers on Wednesday, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
Fox recorded career highs in tackles (38) and sacks (6.5) while playing every regular-season game during his first campaign with the Chargers in 2022. The 27-year-old defensive lineman hasn't missed a game since returning from a torn ACL suffered during OTAs with the Rams in 2018. He's also seen his overall production increase year over year while going from the Rams to the Panthers to the Chargers over the past four seasons.
Fox finished the 2022-23 season with 38 tackles (24 solo), 6.5 sacks and an additional 1.5 tackles for loss across 17 games.
Fox had the best season of his career, setting new highs in both total tackles and sacks. The 28-year-old finished second on the team in sacks and tied for fourth in tackles for loss despite playing only 55 percent of the team's snaps. An unrestricted free agent this offseason, Fox should continue to provide value as a pass rusher either in Los Angeles or elsewhere next season.
Fox totaled four tackles (three solo), including a sack, in Sunday's 31-10 victory versus the Rams.
Fox made an impact early in the contest, sacking Baker Mayfield on the Rams' first drive of the game. It was Fox's fourth sack in his past four games after he notched just 2.5 sacks over his first 12 contests. With Sunday's sack, the veteran is up to 6.5 sacks on the campaign, surpassing the previous career-best six he set in 2020 while with the Rams.
Fox registered six tackles (five solo) and two sacks in Monday's 20-3 win over the Colts.
While the Chargers' pass-rushing corps continues to struggle with injury concerns, Fox stepped up with a career-high six stops in Week 16, while he also compiled his first two-sack performance as a professional Monday. The 28-year-old needs just two more tackles and one more sack to reach new career highs in those categories, and he'll have an opportunity to achieve those marks come New Year's Day against the Rams.
