Campbell wins AFC Defensive POW after eating Eagles O-line


For the second consecutive week, a Raven won AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors. Last week it was Patrick Queen, and this time it's Calais Campbell. 

Let this also serve as a reminder that the Ravens acquired Campbell for a fifth-round pick.

Campbell was dominant in the Ravens' Week 6 victory over the Eagles. He sacked Carson Wentz three times and was in the quarterback's face all day long. He played a large part in preventing Philly from converting a first down through their first seven drives of the game. 

Some of that can be credited to the Eagles starting a fourth-stringer at right guard, but Campbell certainly made sure Philly felt that weakness Sunday. 

The Eagles also appear to be a Player-of-the-Week magnet. Campbell is the fourth to win the award after playing them, a group that includes Chase Claypool, Micah Kiser and Ryan Kerrigan. 

The Ravens are now making a habit of winning this award. They have a third of the winners and will surely add to the list before the season's over. Marlon Humphrey is a candidate for Defensive Player of the Year and he's yet to win, so it'd be fair to expect that to change.

Baltimore's defense is for real, and while the offense has been a topic of concern for fans at the start of the season, there's simply no cause for concern with the other side of the ball.
