Forcing turnovers against the Chargers is no longer novel, but the rate at which Carlos Dunlap did it was still impressive.

The Bengals defensive end was named AFC defensive player of the week, with a pair of sack-forced fumbles and four pressures in the Bengals’ 20-13 road win.

Dunlap now gives the Bengals bookend player-of-week ends, as Michael Johnson won earlier this year. Dunlap has forced three fumbles and recovered three go with his 4.0 sacks and 17 pressures.
