David Bowens gets AFC honor

It's been an amazing week for 12-year veteran David Bowens. The Cleveland Browns backup linebacker was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week Wednesday after his two interceptions for touchdowns against the New Orleans Saints.

Bowens didn't receive much playing time this season and there was speculation he wouldn't make the team following the preseason. But Bowens stayed ready and picked off Pro Bowl quarterback Drew Brees twice for touchdowns this past Sunday of 30 and 64 yards.

The Browns improved to 2-5 and have a bye this week.
