Bruschi is AFC defensive player of the week

Was it an emotional vote? Or just a reflection of the number of times the commenters talked about Bruschi's return during the game. I was excited to see him in on so many plays. He's really going to anchor the middle. Hopefully, Seymour will be back to nail down the center. With both of them in the lineup, I feel real good about playing Indy at home.

NEW YORK (AP) -- New England's Tedy Bruschi, returning to the lineup eight months after a stroke, is the AFC's defensive player of the week.

Bruschi had 10 tackles Sunday in the Patriots' 21-16 win over Buffalo. He played nearly full-time in his first game since the Super Bowl.

Other AFC players honored were Denver quarterback Jake Plummer (offense) and Houston's Jerome Mathis (special teams).

The NFC players of the week were Tiki Barber of the New York Giants (offense); Charles Tillman of Chicago (defense) and Joe Nedney of San Francisco (special teams).
