Lineman Stephen Bowen originally received credit for the sack on quarterback Sam Bradford on first-and-10 from the St. Louis 20-yard line with 5:27 left in the third quarter.

 But after reviewing the game, the NFL’s official stat keepers made a correction and gave the full sack to Kerrigan.

 Kerrigan also has five tackles this season.

 Last season, a half-sack against Dallas awarded to Kerrigan was later credited to defensive end Adam Carriker.

 Kerrigan recorded 7.5 sacks as a rookie last season, second on the team behind Brian Orakpo’s nine.
