Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Cincinnati Bengals safety George Iloka was one of seven nominees for defensive player of the week.

Cincinnati Bengals safety George Iloka was one of seven defensive players that were nominated for the AFC Defensive Player of the Week award that eventually went to Miami Dolphins defensive end Oliver Vernon. Iloka posted six tackles, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery during Cincinnati's 17-10 win over the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.

Vernon, who won the award, registered 10 tackles and a career-high 2.5 quarterback sacks during Miami's 23-3 win over the New York Jets.

Also nominated for the weekly defensive award was Tennessee defensive tackle Jurrell Casey (five tackles, one sack), Indianapolis linebacker Jerrell Freeman (nine tackles, pick, fumble recovery), Jacksonville defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks (three tackles, sack, forced fumble and recovery) and Raiders linebacker Nick Roach (11 tackles, two sacks, forced fumble).

The Bengals weren't completely shutout of the weekly awards. Punter Kevin Huber became only the second punter this year to win the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week on Wednesday.
