Brandon Flowers Gets AFC Defensive Award

It was not ILB Derrick Johnson who was named the AFC’s Defensive Player of the Week on Wednesday.

He was robbed by his teammate CB Brandon Flowers.

Certainly robbed is a bit strong since Flowers or Johnson have no say in what happens with these designations, other than their play on the field.

While Johnson was racking up 13 total tackles and personally destroying the Raiders offense in a classic goal-line stand, Flowers was getting the job done as well. The fourth-year cornerback picked off a pair of Oakland passes, returning one of those for a 58-yard touchdown in the Chiefs 28-0 flogging of the Raiders.

Flowers was credited with five interceptions and four passes defensed.

In 50 games with the Chiefs since being drafted in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft, Flowers has played in 50 games, with 258 total tackles, 13 interceptions and three INT returns.
