Poll: AFC East Player of the Week

By James Walker

It was an up-and-down week for the AFC East. The New England Patriots (11-3) and Miami Dolphins (5-9) looked solid, while the New York Jets (8-6) and Buffalo Bills (5-9) were shaky.

But which player had the best individual performance in the division?

Was it Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez? With so much focus on fellow tight end Rob Gronkowski, Hernandez showed that he can be dangerous with nine receptions for 129 yards and one touchdown.

What about Reggie Bush? Miami's starting running back gained a career-high 203 rushing yards in a win over Buffalo and is only 27 yards away from his first 1,000-yard season. Linebacker David Harris of the Jets and running back C.J. Spiller of the Bills also played well in losing efforts.
