Bengals Odom named AFC Defensive Player of the Week

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Bengals DE Antwan Odom has been named the AFC's Defensive Player of the Week by the NFL.

Odom tied a franchise record at Green Bay on Sunday with five sacks, helping lead the Bengals to a 31-24 win at Lambeau Field.

Odom produced 31 yards in losses with his five sacks of Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers.

Odom also recorded two sacks against Denver in Game 1, and his seven-sack total leads by three in the NFL sacks race. His five sacks in one game were the most by an NFL player in any game since Sept. 30, 2007.

The last Bengal to win an AFC Player of the Week award was CB Leon Hall, for recording three interceptions in a 14-0 win on Dec. 21 of last season against Cleveland.
