Bills’ Jordan Poyer named AFC Defensive Player of the Week

Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer was named AFC Player of the Week on Wednesday for his performance in Sunday’s 23-20 come-from-behind victory over the Baltimore Ravens.

Poyer helped erase a 17-point deficit and complete a second-half comeback with a pair of fourth-quarter interceptions. The most critical one came with four minutes left in regulation. With the game tied at 20, and the Ravens facing a 4th-and-goal at the Bills’ two-yard line, Poyer raced to a wide-open Devin Duvernay in the back right corner of Buffalo’s end zone to make a game-saving interception.

The 31-year-old, in the final year of his contract with the Bills, leads the league in interceptions with four.

This is the second time Poyer has been honored by the league since joining the Bills. He was named AFC Defensive Player of the Month in 2017.
