Samuel named AFC defensive player of the week
The hardware keeps rolling in for the Patriots, as Asante Samuel has been named AFC defensive player of the week for his two interception performance against the Eagles.
Samuel returned his first pick of the night 40 yards for a touchdown, and now has six on the season, tying him with San Diego's Antonio Cromartie for the league lead.
It is the second player of the week award for Samuel in his career and the eighth time this season a Pats player has been named player of the week.
