Troy Polamalu has done it again.

Polamalu has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Week for the second time in as many weeks following the Steelers 23-7 win over AFC North rival Cincinnati this past Sunday.

Polamalu intercepted Cincinnati quarterback Carson Palmer twice -- the first he returned for a touchdown and the second sealed the victory for the Steelers with less than two minutes left in the game.

It is the fifth time that Polamalu has won the award in his eight years in the NFL and fourth time the Steelers have gotten then award this season.

James Harrison won it Week 1, Lawerence Timmons Week 6 and Polamalu the past two weeks.
