ORCHARD PARK – On Wednesday, Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White received the NFL AFC Defensive Player of the Week, the second time White has received it this season, and just one day after being named to his first career Pro Bowl.

In Buffalo’s playoff clinching 17-10 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday night, White finished the game with four tackles and two of the team’s four interceptions.






White is currently an NFL co-leader this season with six interceptions, along with New England Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore, who also used to play for Buffalo.

Prior to receiving this week’s Defensive Player of the Week award, White was named as one of the member’s of the 2020 NFL Pro Bowl on Tuesday night, the only Bills player to receive the honor this season.



White’s other Defensive Player of the Week award this season came against the Miami Dolphins in Week Seven, in which he totaled five tackles, an interception and a forced fumble.

Buffalo will be back in action on Saturday afternoon at 4:30, with the chances of winning the AFC East on the line, as they will take on the Patriots at Gillette Stadium.
