Telvin Smith named Week 5 AFC Defensive Player of the Week

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at Pittsburgh Steelers Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports

Telvin Smith has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in the Jacksonville Jaguars’ matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Somehow the Jaguars landed a linebacker who could meet and tackle a running back like Le’Veon Bell in the open field and return an interception 28 yards in traffic for a go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter.

Pay that man immediately.
