On the defensive side of the ball, Kansas City Chiefs outside linebacker Tamba Hali's 3.5 sacks won him the AFC award. Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis' nine tackles, two sacks and a pass defensed helped pound the Minnesota Vikings, as well as get him the NFC Defensive Player of the Week award.
The least shocking selection this week was Dallas Cowboys return man Dwayne Harris, who won the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week award. Harris had an 86-yard punt-return touchdown and a 90-yard kickoff return in the Cowboys' 31-16 win over the Washington Redskins. Midway through the game, we knew he'd win this award.
NFL Media will announce the players of the week every Wednesday on NFL Network's "NFL AM." The list of Week 5 winners is right here.
