NASHVILLE, Tenn. –** Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in the Titans' 47-7 victory over the St. Louis Rams.

Bulluck combined for 10 total tackles, including one tackle for loss and three passes defensed. It was the fifth time this season Bulluck has tied or led the team in tackles.
