NFL Reveals AFC Players of the Week for Week 6

The NFL announced its AFC Players of the Week for Week 6, and they feature a quarterback taking home his second straight award and a defensive lineman who sparked a shocking blowout of one of the NFC's proudest franchises.
Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen takes home the offensive honors for his clutch effort in a 24-21 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Allen netted 318 passing yards and another 32 yards on the ground, totalling three touchdowns with one turnover. He also led the Bills on a crucial fourth-quarter drive to take the lead with 1:09 remaining in regulation. Allen is on a historic pace for total offense this year, and he enters his team's Week 7 bye as one of the favorites for MVP.

On defense, New York Jets defensive lineman Quinnen Williams wins for his role in his team's 27-10 beatdown of the Green Bay Packers. Williams was everywhere Sunday afternoon, notching a pair of sacks, two tackles for loss, and a blocked field goal. Williams has been arguably the best defensive player on the surprising 4-2 Jets, leading the team in sacks, tackles for loss, and quarterback hits. At his current rate, the fourth-year player could earn himself a massive extension this offseason.

As for special teams, kicker Dustin Hopkins earns the nod for his heroic effort in the Los Angeles Chargers' 19-16 win over the Denver Broncos. Hopkins injured his hamstring early in the game but persevered through obvious pain to go 5/5 on his kicks, including a 39-yard game-winner in overtime. He is set to miss 2-4 weeks with his injury.
