After years of having to go against Joe Staley when the Cardinals face the 49ers, Chandler Jones gets an even better player blocking him in Williams. Jones picked up his only sack of the season in Week 1 against the 49ers but Williams did well against him overall. Jones and Williams are a premier matchup twice a year.
Week 8, Green Bay Packers: No. 1 David Bakhtiari

Week 10, Carolina Panthers: No. 8 Taylor Moton
