This might be the easiest Miami Dolphins game ball to give out all year.  There's not a whole lot of suspense on who was the best player from the Dolphins 20-9 victory over the Washington Redskins.  

After the game, this player declared himself the best linebacker in the NFL.  If he can keep up his performance over the past four weeks, he might have an argument.  He has averaged 10 tackles each of the past four games, along with racking up an interception, a sack, a forced fumble, and three passes defensed.

And this is for a Dolphins inside linebacker.  

During the Redskins game, he picked up that sack, 10 tackles, and two passes defensed.  He's taken charge of the defense, and is starting to play up to the level expected when the Dolphins brought him in last year.  He finally seems comfortable in his role next to fellow linebacker Kevin Burnett, and the two of them are starting to raise the Dolphins defense back towards the performances we all expected to see from the start of the year.

The Dolphins haven't given up a touchdown in two games.

Of course, I am talking about Karlos Dansby, the winner of this week's game ball.  Dansby played some lights out football this week, bringing Miami their first home victory in 364 days.

Hopefully, he can keep playing at this level the rest of the year.
