Peter King Calls Tamba Hali His Defensive Player Of The Week

Tamba Hali is making everyone take notice. Of course, three sacks in one game will do that for you, but those who have been watching — which should be everyone — will tell you he’s always that close to making that many major plays in a game. It’s just that he’s often held when no one is looking or getting double teamed and opening up opportunities for others like Justin Houston.

In his latest Monday Morning Quarterback column, Sports Illustrated’s Peter King has Hali as his defensive player of the week.

King writes, “He capitalized on the soft underbelly of the Green Bay offensive line. But remember, he was rushing over left tackle Marshall Newhouse, who has been the left tackle of the Pack for much of the season since Chad Clifton was lost with a hamstring injury. His three sacks, two pressures and four tackles led the upset of the Packers.”

Hali now has 12 sacks and 4 forced fumbles on the season.
