A short time ago, Hicks was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in the Vikings’ 19-13 victory.
Hicks was all over the place on Sunday, collecting ten tackles and making arguably the two biggest plays of the game. The first came just before halftime when he intercepted a pass from Justin Fields to wipe out a scoring threat from Chicago’s offense, and the second came when he scooped up a Fields fumble that Josh Metellus had forced and rambled 46 yards for what proved to be the game-winning touchdown.
This is the second time that Hicks has won a Defensive Player of the Week Award. The first one also came in a win over Chicago when he was a member of the Arizona Cardinals in 2021. He’s also the first member of the Vikings to be recognized with a weekly award this season.
Congratulations to Jordan Hicks on being named the Week 6 NFC Defensive Player of the Week!
