Michael Bennett named NFC Defensive Player of the Week


After recording a career-best 3.5 sacks in last Thursday’s win over the 49ers, Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week.

The Seahawks sacked Colin Kaepernick six times in the game and held the 49ers to 142 total yards.

Bennett is up to 6.5 sacks on the season. He had 7 sacks last season.

This is Bennett’s first career player of the week award.

  1. When he’s not jumping offsides he is one of the best D lineman in the game… Not close to JJ Watt but still up there with the rest.

  2. 9 pressures on 49 snaps(tops in the league in Week 7), two sacks and two batted passes plus two TFLs and +10.2 PFF grade on top of being the top edge-defender in football and Cam Jordan still gets “no love.” It’s ok, NFL, keep sleeping…

  3. Michael Bennett’s sack total last year is deceiving, he makes multiple impacts every game in run and pass game. If anyone watched the Super Bowl last year he was a one more wrecking crew until Avril went down. The great thing is he is diverse and can line up and have an impact anywhere along the offensive line. Blank Santa earned a pay raise already.

  4. I don’t think Bennett deserves NFC Defensive player of the week, He underachieved against the Niners with only 3.5 sacks. He should have had at least 7 sacks against that pathetic o-line

  5. Good for Bennett. But with Jared Allen now fully integrated and making plays, it’s going to be a Panther winning this award most of the time.

  6. Bennett plays the Niners and runs one direction after a quivering, semi-frozen Kaepernick. .

    Kuechly plays the Ravens. All over the field taking on linemen and running down running backs and

    Not even close. Plus the fact Bennett’s a pompous, moronic jackass.
