If you've been reading any postgame commentary or watched the game yourself, you know this is clearly deserved. (Frankly, he had a strong argument for it last week but his teammate CB Brandon Flowers took it home instead.)
DJ had 16 tackles (according to the Chiefs numbers) along with a sack. He was a force up the middle against the run and made Philip Rivers pay once when he snagged an interception off a tipped pass.
This is DJ's fourth player of the week award. Well deserved for a guy who needs to be voted into the Pro Bowl this year. (Related: Vote DJ into the Pro Bowl here.)
