The Buffalo Bills needed several players to step up if they were to pull off a road upset in Week 5. Well, the team as a whole was seemingly firing on all cylinders in their 38-20 trouncing over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Now a Bills rookie has been recognized for his efforts in Kansas City.

AFC Player of the Week

First-year EDGE Gregory Rousseau won the AFC's Defensive Player of the Week for his performance against the Chiefs.

The University of Miami product turned out to be a nightmare for Patrick Mahomes. The rookie recorded 5 tackles, 1.0 sacks and 1 QB hit in Week 5. He also broke up a pass and corralled the ball for his first-ever career interception.

Rousseau's huge night was a key part of Buffalo's dominance on defense. He'll look to step up in primetime once again on Monday night against the Tennessee Titans.

The Bills are 6-point favorites ahead of that game, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
