Chris Jones wins AFC Defensive Player of the Week

Chris Jones wins AFC Defensive Player of the Week”

In Sunday's win over the Philadelphia Eagles, Chris Jones had a stat line that might be good for some other defensive linemen for an entire season.

Jones forced two fumbles, recorded three sacks and had an interception in the 27-20 win. The INT came with the game tied at 13 in the fourth quarter.

Along with those stats, Jones had another pass breakup, another tackle for loss and a total of four tackles. He's the second Chief to take home one of the National Football League honors in as many games played this year. He has the enthusiasm and energy of a teenager that the fans in K.C. have drawn to like a moth to the flame.

Jones, a second year pro from Mississippi State, is the Chiefs second weekly award victor. He joined Alex Smith who won the award on offense following his Week 1 performance against the New England Patriots. He was slowed this summer with an injury and was placed on the physically-unable-to-perform list to start training camp.
