After a great game in Sunday’s big win over the Bills, Jets linebacker David Harris is the AFC’s defensive player of the week.

Harris intercepted a pass, knocked down another and had five tackles in the Jets’ 27-11 victory, helping to largely shut down a Buffalo offense that had entered Week 9 averaging more than 30 points a game.

The Jets have already had three different players win the defensive player of the week award this season. Antonio Cromartie got the honor after Week 2 and Darrelle Revis got the award in Week 6.

This is Harris’s second career player of the week award; he also won it in Week 1 of 2009.
