Texans defensive end Connor Barwin had four sacks on Sunday in Jacksonville. And yet that wasn’t enough to be named the AFC defensive player of the week.
With one fewer sack, the honor went to Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs, according to the team’s official Twitter feed.
Of course, it’s hard to make the case to not give it to Suggs. His effort came against a 9-1 team on a national stage.
Some of the other players of the week likely will be trickling out in the coming days, with the full list from both conferences officially unveiled on Wednesday.
