David Bowens named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week

As one would expect, linebacker David Bowens has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Week after taking back a pair of picks for scores in the teams win over the Saints.

He joined Ken Norton (10/22/1995) and Derrick Johnson (1/3/2010) as the only linebackers in the NFL since 1970 to record two interception-return touchdowns in a game. He also became the first Browns player to return two interceptions for touchdowns in a single game since Bob Franklin on December 11, 1960 against the Chicago Bears.

The award is the first of Bowens’ 12-year career and he is the first Browns player to be named AFC Defensive Player of the Week since defensive back Eric Wright was selected during Week 6 of the 2008 season. He is the first Browns linebacker to garner the award since Andra Davis earned the honor during Week 11 of the 2005 season.
