New England Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Week. Jone may have had his best all-around game in a Pats uniform Sunday in the win against the Minnesota Vikings.

Jones sacked QB Matt Cassel twice, hit the quarterback three times and recorded three tackles for a loss. In total, Jones was in on eight tackles.

Jones also blocked a field goal try and scooped up the ball and ran it 58-yards for a touchdown. However, that play is considered a special teams play by the NFL.

The Patriots(1-1) will play their home opener Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.
