San Diego Chargers LB Donald Butler was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance against the Kansas City Chiefs. Good to see he is starting to get a recognition around the league.

Butler finished with 6 tackles, half a sack and an interception that he took in for a touchdown. He has been a force on the defense and is quickly becoming a player that teams need to gameplan for.

Having playmakers on the defensive side of the ball is fun! Congrats to the Butler.

Cameron Wake and Miami fans are going to be a little butt hurt about this selection though. Wake finished the game with 4.5 sacks and 5 tackles in a losing effort against the Cardinals. Those are some big time numbers.
