Aaron Donald was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week (Week 5).
Donald recorded four sacks, four tackles, three tackles for loss, and three quarterback hits while playing just 81 percent of the defensive snaps.
The snaps were a season-low for Donald, but he finished with his best game yet, proving how dominant he is through the first five weeks of the 2020 NFL season.
Widely regarded as the league’s best defensive player, Donald continues to prove why he is feared by opposing quarterbacks with the Los Angeles Rams now.
Heading into Week 6 against the San Francisco 49ers now, Donald will yet again have to put pressure on the quarterback and force him to make mistakes.
If Donald is able to do that, they will have a good chance to advance to 5-1.
