Poll: AFC East Player of the Week
By James Walker
It was a wild week in the AFC East. But there were also several good performances.
So who is our latest Player of the Week from the division?
Was it Wes Welker? The New England Patriots receiver bounced back from a slow start with eight receptions for 142 yards. Welker stepped up big and got more reps with the absence of injured tight end Aaron Hernandez.
Jets receiver Santonio Holmes also had a big day. He showed his playmaking ability in an overtime win over the Miami Dolphins. Holmes had a season high nine receptions for 147 yards. Did Holmes have the best performance this week?
Bills defensive end Mario Williams finally exploded. He had four tackles and 1.5 sacks in Buffalo’s win over the Cleveland Browns. The Bills will need Williams to do the same against the Patriots this week.
Finally, Dolphins linebacker Kevin Burnett played a solid game with nine tackles. He had a big stuff at the goal line against Jets running back Shonn Greene.
