BRONCOS S T.J. WARD NAMED AFC DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos safety T.J. Ward was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in Denver’s 23-20 win against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 4, the NFL informed the Broncos on Wednesday.

The award represents the first conference recognition of his career and the second player of the week honor for a Bronco this season (cornerback Aqib Talib, Week 1).

Against the Vikings, Ward totaled six solo tackles, a career-high two sacks (18 yds.) and one forced fumble. His strip-sack of quarterback Teddy Bridgewater with 0:35 remaining led to a Broncos recovery and sealed Denver’s fourth consecutive win.

Ward joined safety John Lynch (at S.D., 12/31/05) as the only defensive backs in Broncos history to record two sacks and a forced fumble in the same game. He also became just the third NFL safety in the last five years to accomplish that feat.

His award marks the 29th time a Broncos player has taken home AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors since it was initiated by the NFL in 1984.
