Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes is this week’s AFC Defensive Player of the Week for his Week 7 performance against the Jets. It’s a first time honor for the defensive end after he had his best game of the season tallying 2.0 sacks, one interception, a forced fumble, a pass defensed and six total tackles.
Hughes’ interception was the first of his career. His 2.0 sacks were the most in a game since 2017. The defensive end now has 48.5 career sacks, which ties former Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams for the fifth-most sacks in Bills history.
