Donald named NFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 11

Rams DT Aaron Donald was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 11 following his performance against the Bears on Sunday Night Football.

The former Pitt standout finished with four total tackles, including two for loss, plus two sacks, four QB hits and one pass breakup in Los Angeles' 17-7 win over Chicago.

"I feel like we made good plays," Donald said postgame. "We got the ball back to the offense, we had turnovers, we made big plays when we needed to do it, and we came away with a win."

For Donald, this marks the sixth time in his career that he has received conference defensive player of the week honors. He won it twice last season on his way to his second consecutive Defensive Player of the Year award, once in 2016 and twice in 2015.
