Big NFL honor for Raiders defensive player

Raiders defensive end Chandler Jones has been named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week.

Jones, who has struggled rushing the passer this season, broke out against the Chargers on Sunday with three sacks, six tackles, two tackles for loss and a tipped pass in the Raiders’ 27-20 victory over the Chargers.

Jones’ honor is the seventh of his career as the Defensive Player of the Week and his first with the Raiders.
