Kansas City safety honored
By Bill Williamson
Kansas City safety Mike Brown became the first Chiefs safety in more than 12 years to win the AFC Defensive Player of the Week award.
Brown won the honor after he had two interceptions in the fourth quarter, including one that sealed the game in the final seconds. He also had a personal best four passes defensed. Kansas City won 16-10.
Brown has been an outstanding contributor for Kansas City this season after he signed in the summer as a free agent. He has been a leader and a playmaker. He is a favorite of coach Todd Haley.
The last time Kansas City had a safety win the award was Jerome Woods in Week 5 of 1997.
