    Chicago Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan played a huge role in his team’s home opening win over the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, and he was rewarded for his play with the NFC Defensive Player of the Week award.

    Trevathan sacked Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson twice in the win over the Seahawks, and he also registered eight tackles and a forced fumble as he led an aggressive Bears attack in the contest.

    The Bears have been the talk of the NFL thus far this season thanks to their defense, registering a league-leading 10 sacks in their first two games. They sacked Wilson a total of six times in the game and forced two turnovers, including an interception return for a touchdown by cornerback Prince Amukamara.

    According to the Bears, Trevathan is the second player to win the award over the last two seasons, joining safety Eddie Jackson, who won in the team’s Week 7 win over the Carolina Panthers in 2017.
