Peter King Awards Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson With Defensive Player Of Week

In his Monday Morning Quarterback column, Peter King today gave the Kansas City Chiefs’ Derrick Johnson his Defensive Player of the Week nod after Johnson’s stellar performance for the Chiefs in their 28-0 win over the Oakland Raiders. From the goal line stand early in the game to his ability to get into the Oakland backfield throughout the game, Johnson certainly made his presence felt.

King writes, “And not just for his 13-tackle game in the 28-0 shutout of the Raiders in Oakland. With the Chiefs up 14-0, Oakland drove to the Chiefs’ two-yard line early in the second quarter. This was the time they’d get back in the game — if they were going to get back in the game at all. On second-and-goal from the two, Johnson stuffed running back Michael Bush after a one-yard gain. Third-and-goal from the one: Bush, no gain. Team tackle. Fourth-and-goal from the one: Bush over left guard, stoned by Johnson. And that was Oakland’s best chance of the day.”

For the day, Johnson had 13 tackles (12 solo) and he now has 44 on the year.
