Eric Decker highlights AFC Players of the Week

New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker, Miami Dolphins defensive end Olivier Vernon and Cincinnati Bengals punter Kevin Huber have been named the AFC Players of the Week for Week 13.

Decker, recorded eight catches for 174 yards and four touchdowns in the Broncos' 35-28 win at the Chiefs. His four TD catches are the most in a single game in club history and tied for the most in an NFL game this season (Marvin Jones).

Vernon racked up 10 tackles and had a career-high 2.5 sacks to help the Dolphins beat the New York Jets 23-3. This is the second career Player of the Week honor for the second year pro out of Miami. He joins fellow defensive line teammate Cameron Wake (Week 9) as the second Dolphin to garner the award this season.

Huber punted four times for 222 yards (55.5 average), including two punts inside the 20 during the Bengals' 17-10 victory at the San Diego Chargers. His 75-yard punt tied a team record and was the second-longest punt this season. He is the first Bengals punter to win the award since it started in 1984.
