Bills' Robey-Coleman named AFC Defensive Player of the Week

For the second week in a row, the Buffalo Bills have the AFC's Defensive Player of the Week.

Defensive back Nickell Robey-Coleman earned the honors for his two interceptions, including a decisive pick-six, in the Bills' 30-19 victory against the Los Angeles Rams Sunday.

In Week Four, linebacker Zach Brown was the AFC Defensive Player of the Week for his 18-tackle performance in the Bills' win at New England.

It marks the first time the Bills have had back-to-back AFC DPOW winners since linebacker Cornelius Bennett and cornerback Nate Odomes, also in Weeks Four and Five, in 1991.

Robey-Coleman's 41-yard interception return for a touchdown broke a 16-16 tie in the third quarter at the L.A. Coliseum.

The game marked a homecoming for Robey-Coleman, who played at the University of Southern California. His three interception returns for scores still stand as a record for the Trojans.

Robey-Coleman has two defensive touchdowns this season, making him the 10th player in Bills history to do so in one season.
