He accounted for more than 72 percent of Denver's receptions and receiving yards, plus 60 percent of the team's first downs.

He was joined in the AFC by Tennessee Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck (Defense) and Cleveland wide receiver/kick returner Joshua Cribbs (Special Teams).

Bulluck amassed two interceptions, 10 tackles and one tackle for a loss in the Titans' 47-7 win over the

St. Louis Rams.

Cribbs earned his second weekly honor after totaling 200 yards (61 punt return, 43 kick return, 87 rushing, nine receiving) in Cleveland's 13-6 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
