CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns linebacker Joe Schobert has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Week, the NFL announced on Wednesday. He’s the first Browns player to win AFC Defensive Player since linebacker D’Qwell Jackson was given the title in Week 12 of 2012.

During a 41-24 victory against Miami, Schobert recorded five tackles, two interceptions and four passes defensed. He became the sixth linebacker in NFL history to have at least two interceptions and four passes defensed.
