Detroit Lions defensive lineman Aidan Hutchinson has been named NFC Defensive Player of the Week.

Hutchinson registered his second-career interception and first-career fumble recovery in the Lions’ 31-18 win at the New York Giants in Week 11. He is the first rookie defensive lineman to record an interception and fumble recovery in a game since Kerry Wynn (Week 16, 2014).

This is the first Defensive Player of the Week award for Hutchinson and he joins Kerby Joseph (Week 9) as the only Lions rookies to ever earn the honor. He is the first Detroit defensive lineman to win the award since Ezekiel Ansah (Week 17, 2017).

Buffalo Bills linebacker Matt Milano  has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Week.

Milano recorded 12 tackles, three tackles for loss, one sack and one fumble recovery in Buffalo’s 31-23 victory over Cleveland in Detroit. He is the first player with at least 10 tackles, three tackles for loss, one sack and a fumble recovery in a single game since Ryan Shazier (Week 2, 2015).    

This is the second-career Defensive Player of the Week award for Milano (Week 3, 2018) and first this season.
