Another Steeler has earned an honor for his on the field play, as today the NFL announced that Steelers DB Mike Hilton is the AFC Defensive Player of the week.
.@MikeHilton_31 has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Week.

All Hilton did in the Steelers 34-6 runaway win on Christmas over the Texans was record three QB sacks, a rare feat in a game for a defensive back.
For Hilton it is his first player of the week award he has won in his NFL career, and this season eight Steelers have won some type of weekly award.
