The Buffalo Bills' defense was clicking on all cylinders in Week 4 against the Houston Texans. This unit held Houston to just 109 total yards, and the Texans put up a blank on the scoreboard.

Now one member of the Bills' defense has been honored for his Week 4 efforts.

Linebacker Tremaine Edmunds was named the AFC's Defensive Player of the Week for his performance against the Texans.

Edmunds made his presence felt, racking up 6 tackles and a pass deflection against Houston. He also had an impressive interception in the first quarter that set up Buffalo's first score in an eventual 40-0 rout. The INT was Edmunds' first since the 2019 campaign, so it's nice to see him get recognized after coming up big in coverage.

The star linebacker will look to make a similar impact in Week 5 against the Kansas City Chiefs. KC is a 3-point favorite in that matchup, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
