Former LSU LB Patrick Queen honored as Defensive Player of the Week
Former LSU standout Patrick Queen has been recognized as the AFC’s Defensive Player of the Week for Week 5. Queen had an impressive outing going up against a Cincinnati Bengals offensive led by his former Tigers teammate Joe Burrow.
Queen’s first big highlight of Sunday in the second quarter came when he sacked Burrow, forcing a fumble and recovering for the Baltimore Ravens defense. Later, in the fourth quarter, Queen scored his first career touchdown recovering a fumble forced by defensive back Marlon Humphrey, returning 53 yards for six points. Humphrey is already campaigning on social media for his teammate to win Defensive Rookie of the Year.
