Los Angeles Rams’ DT Aaron Donald was his typical self last Sunday, wreaking havoc in the opposition’s backfield in the team’s 17-7 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday Night Football. As a result, he’s been named the Week 11 NFC Defensive Player of the Week.
Donald finished the night with four tackles (two for loss), a pair of sacks and four QB hits. It was just another day at the office for the NFL’s best defensive player. His Week 11 performance also earned him an “Elite” grade (93.3) from Pro Football Focus.
This marks the first time in 2019 that Donald has earned the NFC player of the week honors. He won it twice last season — a year in which he also earned NFL Defensive Player of the Year honors (for the second consecutive season) — and he’s now won the Player of the Week award for the sixth time in his career.
