Tracy Porter earned AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors Wednesday for breaking up five passes, collecting eight solo tackles and returning an interception for a touchdown that sealed the Broncos' 31-19 win over Pittsburgh.
It was Porter's NFL-leading third career game-sealing interception since 2009, including his 74-yard pick-six in the Super Bowl three years ago that sealed New Orleans' 24-17 win over Indianapolis.
