Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week by the NFL for his efforts in the Chiefs’ 28-0 win against the Oakland Raiders.
This is the first honor of this kind for Flowers, who earned the recognition by intercepting two passes against the Raiders, returning one 58 yards for a touchdown. Flowers also posted five tackles, three of which were solo. This season Flowers has four interceptions, which is tied for the AFC lead and tied for second in the NFL. The four-year veteran out of Virginia Tech has spent his entire NFL career with the Chiefs, amassing 225 tackles, four forced fumbles and 13 interceptions.
