Saints DE Cameron Jordan Named NFC Defensive Player of the Week

And it’s well-deserved.

NFL: Detroit Lions at New Orleans Saints Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

On pace for a 15-sack season, New Orleans Saints Defensive End had a monster game against the Detroit Lions, leading to being named this week’s NFC Defensive Player of the Week.

After being snubbed for the Pro Bowl in 2016, Jordan is finally starting to get the national attention he deserves. A pick-six in the endzone likely helped getting people to look his way.

And that’s not even mentioned how he had one of the most disrespectful plays of the week against the Lions, literally sacking the Lions QB with a Lions Offensive Lineman.

Congratulations, Cam. It’s well-deserved. Here’s to seeing you in the Pro Bowl this year.
