Steelers strong safety Troy Polamalu, whose interception set up the only touchdown in a 13-9 win at Cleveland, has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Week.

Polamalu also broke up three passes and dropped Browns quarterback for a loss after perfectly timing the snap from center and crashing through the line of scrimmage.

This marks the fifth time in his career that Polamalu has won the award.
