'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

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.
