Bills DT Marcell Dareus and S Jairus Byrd were both honored for their performances in Buffalo’s Week 6 win at Arizona.

ProFootballFocus named both to their Team of the Week for Week 6. Here was their assessment.

Defensive Tackle: Marcell Dareus, BUF (+3.4) and Nick Fairley, DET (+3.2)
The two top defensive tackles taken in 2011, both showed what they’re capable of in week 6 of their sophomore years. Dareus feasted on Adam Snyder while Fairley overcame two penalties to put forth his strongest showing as a pro. They combined for two hits and eight hurries.

Safeties: Jairus Byrd, BUF (+5.2) and Madieu Williams, WAS (+3.4)
Some defensive backs just have a knack for making plays, and the two big ones Byrd made essentially won the game for Buffalo. How do you think Minnesota fans felt watching Williams play so well? Not something they were overly accustomed to in his last few years with the club.

Byrd also was named Player of the Game by ProFootballFocus for the Bills win over the Cardinals.
