Miami Dolphins starting defensive tackle Randy Starks has been named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week. Starks had .5 sacks, three tackles, two passes defensed, and an interception that he plucked out of the air at the line of scrimmage.
Starks has 3 interceptions in two seasons the most by a defensive lineman. Starks was also the player who blocked the first FG attempt against the Jets, pictured, that was negated by an “icing” time out.
