Buffalo Bills defensive end Greg Rousseau has been named the AFC's Defensive Player of the Week for his Week 5 performance against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night at Arrowhead Stadium.

The rookie pass rusher was all over the field, collecting his first career interception to go along with five total tackles, including one for a loss, a sack, a quarterback hurry, and a pass breakup in the team's 38-20 win.

Rousseau becomes the first Bills rookie defensive player to win the weekly NFL honor since linebacker Cornelius Bennett did so in 1987.

So far through five games with the Bills, the 21-year-old has already outperformed his early expectations, registering 18 total tackles, four tackles for loss, three quarterback hits, three sacks and his interception.
