AFC North High Energy Player of the Week

A look at a player who gave his team a significant boost in Week 11.

Coming off a subpar performance against the New England Patriots, the Pittsburgh Steelers' defense relied on James Harrison on Sunday to ignite this unit -- and he answered the call.

The Pro Bowl linebacker had his most well-rounded performance of the season in Pittsburgh's 35-3 blowout victory over the Oakland Raiders. Harrison recorded five tackles, two sacks, an interception and a forced fumble as he wreaked havoc in Oakland's backfield.

Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell may still have nightmares about Harrison. Oakland's offensive line couldn't keep Harrison off Campbell, who took several tough shots from the linebacker before being benched in the second half.

The most controversial hit on Campbell was a well-timed blow by Harrison that forced an interception by Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor. It was called back because Harrison was flagged for roughing the passer. Harrison could be facing another fine for what looked like a clean play.

Other than that, it was another good day at the office for Harrison. He leads the Steelers with nine sacks, and Sunday marked his third multi-sack game of the season.
