Default Polamalu wins afc defense player of the week

Polamalu was honored for the second straight week, this time for his performance in the Steelers 23-7 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Polamalu got the Steelers on the board when he intercepted his former college roommate Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer, and returned it 45 yards for a touchdown to tie the game at 7-7 in the second quarter.

“Troy had a tremendous break on the play,” said Coach Mike Tomlin. “Whether or not he was baiting Carson is debatable. It was a route that he was familiar with. I think TO (Terrell Owens) was the intended receiver, and may have tripped or stumbled coming out of his break. I think that provided the necessary grass that Troy needed to come down hill on the ball and make the play. But no question, Troy was in great position and he had a great break on the ball.”

As has been the case over the last month Polamalu also helped to seal the win with another big play when he intercepted Palmer at the goal line as the Bengals were driving late in the game, returning it to the 12-yard line.
This is the fifth time Polamalu has won the Player of the Week award in eight seasons and the second time this season. He won the award last week for his performance against the Baltimore Ravens. He is the third Steelers defender to win the award this year, joining James Harrison (week one) and Lawrence Timmons (week six).

I know Polamalu won't win MVP, since they always give that award to a quarterback, but he had damn well better win Defensive Player of the Year. He's been more impressive than Revis, Reed and almost all of the other guys who are always in the conversation. Clay Matthews might be his only competition, but I think he was out of a couple of games and if the Packers end up missing the playoffs altogether, then I think the award should definitely go to Troy.

Of course , I wouldn't complain if someone named Harrison, Woodley or Timmons snatched it up either.
