Four Players Since Week 10 Have Won Defensive Player Of The Week After Facing The Jets

The Daily News points out a common thread in one of the NFL's weekly awards:

Jason Pierre-Paul just received his after a five-tackle, two-sack Christmas Eve against the Jets.


• Jason Babin earned his with four sacks on Mark Sanchez.

• Von Miller only had one-and-a-half sacks of Sanchez, but racked up nine tackles.

Andre Carter took down Sanchez 4.5 times for his award—nearly half his season total.

It doesn't matter what position you play, or what conference you're in, or even whether you're a particularly great defensive football player: the Jets' offensive line is the path to stardom and laurels.
