Denver receiver leads AFC weekly honorees

NEW YORK, Sept. 17 (UPI) -- Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall was among the players earning AFC weekly honors Wednesday.

Marshall, in his third NFL season from Central Florida, equaled a league record Sunday making a franchise-record 18 receptions for 166 yards with one touchdown in the Broncos' 39-38 win against San Diego.


With 18 receptions, he joined former Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Tom Fears, who recorded 18 receptions against Green Bay on Dec. 12, 1950 for the second most receptions in a single-game in NFL history.

Marshall was joined in the AFC honors by Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu (defense) and Tennessee Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck (special teams).

Polamalu made his second interception this season with four tackles -- one for a loss -- in Pittsburgh's 10-6 victory against the Cleveland Browns.

Bulluck blocked a punt and recovered it for a touchdown in the Titans' 24-7 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
