AFC East Player of the Week
By James Walker
The AFC East finished 2-2 this past weekend, creating a four-way tie at the top of the division. There were a number of good individual performances. But who is the latest AFC East Player of the Week?
Is it Miami Dolphins tailback Reggie Bush? He rushed for 172 yards and two touchdowns while wearing out the Oakland Raiders’ defense. Bush ran well inside the tackles and outside for big gains. It was one of Bush’s best performances of his career.
Or should C.J. Spiller get the nod this week? Spiller was a candidate in Week 1 after putting up big numbers in a blowout loss. This time Spiller rushes for 123 yards and two touchdowns in the Buffalo Bills’ win over the Kansas City Chiefs.
Unknown linebacker Garrett McIntyre of the New York Jets and New England Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes also played well defensively in a pair of losing efforts.
