Don’t tell Rex Ryan. This Aaron Donald kid is pretty good.

The Rams defensive tackle was named NFC defensive player of the week, the third time in the last 20 weeks he’s won that award.

Donald had 1.5 sacks and forced a fumble as the Rams improved to 3-1 with a win over the Cardinals.

And since he’s fired up about Ryan’s comments about his talents relative to Jets defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson, this week’s game against the Bills could provide more opportunity for big numbers for the dominant interior rusher.
