Ray Lewis named Defensive Player of Week

Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week after he recorded 10 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble in Baltimore's 37-7 rout of the St. Louis Rams, the team announced Tuesday.

This marks the eighth time that Lewis has received the award in his 16-year NFL career. It's his first since Week 10 of 2008.

The Ravens, who rank first in fewest points in the NFL this season, have taken this defensive award twice in the first three weeks of the season. Baltimore linebacker Terrell Suggs was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week after the first game.
