Normally we don’t pay too much attention to the NFL Player of the Week awards because, let’s be honest, hardly anyone remembers the winners of the award one month later. Or even a few days later. But every once in a while you get a Player of the Week award upset.

This week, Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons took home AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors. Timmons had a terrific game against the Browns, recording 11 tackles, two sacks and an interception.

But what about Dolphins outside linebacker Cameron Wake? The rising star recorded three sacks, three tackles for a loss and six hits on the quarterback in his team’s overtime win against the Packers. Wake’s performance did not come at home against a sluggish offense led by a rookie quarterback making his NFL debut – it came on the road against Aaron Rodgers.

At the end of the day, it’s not a big deal. Timmons and Wake are both breakout players performing at a Pro Bowl level this season. Just thought it might be worth having the discussion since, well, honestly, since yours truly declared Wake a “lock” for Player of the Week honors on Monday.

I guess more people know Timmons than Wake?

And, well, the Steelers are the better team right now.
