CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Bengal's defensive end, Carlos Dunlap, has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Week by the NFL.

The third-year pro from Florida had two sacks on Dan Diego quarterback Philip Rivers in last week's match up at Qualcomm Stadium. Both sacks resulted in fumbles.

The first fumble was recovered by San Diego in the first quarter for a seven-yard loss.  

Late in the fourth quarter, Dunlap dropped Philips for a 10 yard loss forcing a second fumble. Dunlap recovered the fumble, himself, returning two yards. 

Dunlap totaled five tackles in the game.  He was credited by coaches with four additional QB pressures.

Dunlap leads the Bengals this season in fumble recoveries with three.  He is also tied for the lead in forced fumbles with three. Dunlap is tied for third in sacks (4.0) and third in QB pressures (17).

Dunlap joins defensive end, Michael Johnson, as the second Bengal this season to win AFC Defensive Player of the Week.

The Bengals have captured five of the league's weekly or monthly AFC awards this season. With four games left to play,  they are tied for second most in franchise history. The 2012 Bengals are one short of the six awards garnered in 1988 and 1989.
