Wesley Woodyard named AFC defensive player of the week


Broncos linebacker Wesley Woodyard filled up a stat sheet Sunday night, and now has something to fill his trophy case with.

Woodyard was named AFC defensive player of the week, after leading the Broncos to a dominant win over the Saints.

He had 13 tackles, a sack, an interception, a forced fumble and broke up two passes in the 34-14 win. All those either set or matched career highs.

Since the stats have been tracked in 1982, he’s just the ninth player to record 10 or more tackles, a sack an interception and a forced fumble in a single game.
