Congratulations to David Harris, who was named the AFC’s Defensive Player of the week for his game against the Bills. Harris made a great interception in the second quarter, was credited with five tackles on the day (one for loss) along with two quarterback hits.
Randy Lange notes on the Jets website that in just nine weeks so far this season, this is the third DPOW for the Jets.
It’s also the Jets defense’s third POW award this season and its second in the past three games. Antonio Cromartie won the title after his showing vs. Jacksonville in Game 2, and Darrelle Revis was similarly rewarded his Week 6 primetime effort against the Dolphins.
It speaks to the multifaceted nature of this defense. The Jets can beat you with multiple playmakers from multiple spots on the defense.
