The National Football League informed the Chiefs on Wednesday that DE Jared Allen has been named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in a 28-21 win against the Washington Redskins last Sunday. This is the first time Allen has claimed Conference Player of the Week accolades. Allen is the first member of the Chiefs to win Defensive Player of the Week honors since LB Mike Maslowski received the accolade in 2002.

Allen (6-6, 265 - Photos) registered six tackles (five solo) and recorded career-highs with 3.0 sacks, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. The second-year pro became the first Chiefs player to register two fumble recoveries, two forced fumbles and at least 1.0 sack in a game since LB Derrick Thomas did it in a 30-10 win at Atlanta (9/18/94).

Allen ended the Redskins first drive of the game with a sacked and stripped QB Mark Brunell then recovered the fumble. He then turned the trick again in the third quarter when he knocked the ball from Brunell and scooped up the fumble. Finally, with Kansas City holding a slim 28-21 fourth-quarter lead, Allen recorded back-to-back sacks on second and third down, effectively ending another Washington possession and helping preserve the Chiefs 28-21 win.

Allen, the Chiefs leading sacker with 5.0 (-31.0 yards) on the season, also leads the team with 19 QB pressures and four forced fumbles while ranking sixth on the squad in tackles with 30 (19 solo). In his rookie season a year ago Allen was given the Chiefs Mack Lee Hill Award, which is given to the club’s top rookie or first-year player. The Idaho State product finished first on the team with 9.0 sacks (-47.0 yards) in 2004 and has now totaled 14.0 for his career. His 9.0 sacks a year ago were the second-highest total by a rookie in Chiefs history, trailing only the 10.0 registered by Thomas in ‘89. The Los Gatos, California native is in his second season with the Chiefs after joining the club as the second of two fourth-round picks in the 2004 draft.

Penis size must have pushed him over the top for this.

Nice to see some good pub for our defense.

After the NFL games were over Sunday, asshat Eric Allen on ESPN radio gave his gameball to Roy Williams of the Cowboys, and Jared Allen wasn't even one of the four or five defensive candidates they listed.

Imagine that.

The NFL noticed a Chief defender!
