Dunlap, Suisham win AFC weekly honors
By Jamison Hensley
Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap and Steelers kicker Shaun Suisham were named AFC players of the week.
Dunlap is the second Bengal this season to win AFC defensive player of the week, joining defensive end Michael Johnson. He sacked Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers twice and forced a fumble each time. Dunlap also had five tackles in the game and recorded four additional quarterback pressures.
Suisham was named AFC special teams player of the week for the second time this year and the third time for his career. He converted all three of his field goals, all from 40 yards and hit the game-winning 42-yarder as time expired in Baltimore. It was the fifth game-winner in his Steelers career.
