Linebacker Tamba Hali brought the honor home to Kansas City for the third time this season by sacking Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor 3.5 times in last weekend’s 24-7 victory. Hali’s efforts were part of a 10-sack performance by the Chiefs defense that drove them to their sixth straight win to open the season.
Hali is the second Chiefs player to pick up weekly defensive honors this season. Linebacker Justin Houston received the award twice in September on the way to being named the conference’s defensive player of the month as well.
