D Wizzle's Week 2 NFL Awards

AFC East Player of the Week: Buffalo QB Trent Edwards

Edwards was 20-25 for 239 yards with one TD as the Bills defeated Jacksonville 20-16. This was a big win for the Bills on the road. Edwards was very steady and threw a TD pass to James Hardy to help the Bills take the lead in the fourth quarter.

AFC North Player of the Week: Pittsburgh Safety Troy Polamalu 

Polamalu had four tackles and one key interception in the second quarter to help the Steelers defeat the Browns 10-6. The Browns were in FG position near the end of the first half when Polamalu got his interception.

AFC South Player of the Week: Tennessee QB Kerry Collins

Collins didn't make any key mistakes and led his team to a big win on the road over the Bengals. Collins was 14-21 for 128 yards with one TD pass.

AFC West Player of the Week: Denver WR Eddie Royal

Royal caught the TD and game-winning two-point conversion at the end of the fourth quarter to lead the Broncos to a huge 39-38 win over San Diego. Royal finished with five catches for  37 yards.

NFC East Player of the Week: Dallas WR Terrell Owens

Owens had two TD receptions to help the Cowboys beat the Eagles on Monday Night Football 41-37.

NFC North Player of the Week: Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers

Rodgers was 24-38 for 328 yards and three TDs as the Packers beat the Lions 48-25.

NFC South  Player of the Week: Carolina RB Jonathan Stewart

Stewart ran for two TDs as Carolina downed the Bears 20-17.

NFC West Player of the Week:  San Francisco LB Patrick Willis

If not for Willis' 86-yard interception return for a TD in the third quarter, the 49ers might be staring at an 0-2 record. The 49ers were down  20-13, and the Seahawks were driving deep in San Francisco territory when Willis caught a tipped ball and was able to run it all the way to the end zone.

Upset of the Week: Buffalo 20 Jacksonville 16

It is not easy to beat Jacksonville at home, but the Bills were able to do that. This is a big win for the 2-0 Bills.
