Babin's game-saving sack against the Giants.
Some may turn their nose up at Babin's season because of how poorly the team has played.
Some because he is nowhere near the stature of White or Simmons.
Others still because of the quirky wide-nine technique he plays in or the fact that he is one-dimensional.
Those are valid points, but this isn't a career achievement, this is an isolation of single-season performance.
Under that criteria, Babin has been right up there. With one game remaining, Babin has amassed 18.0 sacks thus far.
He registered a sack in nine games, he has six multi-sack games and has posted three three-sack games.
Babin has dropped quarterbacks on 3.45 percent of opponents' drop-backs and has accounted for 36.7 percent of his team's sacks.
He has an outside shot at reaching the team's single-season record of 21.0 sacks.
