Kansas City Chiefs safety Tyvon Branch has received AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors for his game last Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.
Branch had 4 tackles (3 solo), 1 pass defensed and the game-clinching interception for a touchdown in Kansas City's 34-20 win.
"It's a blessing," he said upon receiving the award. "To be a part of a team like this and a defense like this, it's definitely a blessing."
It was his first game against the Raiders after spending the first seven years of his career with the organization.
