The Chiefs’ Marcus Peters was the AFC defensive player of the week this week. He is not the AFC defensive player of the month. That goes to the Broncos’ Von Miller, the NFL announced today.

They both made big impacts. The stats say Peters had four picks (one in a loss, one in a win) while Von Miller had five sacks, which leads the NFL. I have a feeling Peters is going to win one of these defensive players of the month award before his career is over. Maybe a couple of them.
