NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Minnesota Vikings Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

As a tough season continues forward for the Arizona Cardinals one thing is for certain, Chandler Jones is comfortable in the new defense.

A week after a dominating the San Francisco 49ers in what was undoubtedly his best game of 2018, Jones backed it up with an even better performance.

He was recognized by Pro Football Focus as one of the best players on defense in week six, highlighting the Pro Football Focus team of the week.

Jones posted a massive game:

> From 35 pass-rushing snaps, he racked up two sacks, four hurries, a batted pass and a forced fumble. The Cardinals didn’t pick up the win, but Jones still dominated off the edge.

That’s been something that was a bit, a small, concern after the first couple weeks. Now, it seems like a distant memory in a season fill of question marks.

Jones, combined with Patrick Peterson create one of the most dynamic pass rush and cover combos in the league.

Of course, if you ask bad analyst, the Cardinals should trade both.
