By virtue of his two-interception, one-sack day against the New York Jets, Seattle cornerback Josh Wilson has been nominated for defensive player of the week (an award that Lofa Tatupu said immediately after the game that Wilson should win.)

Here is Wilson’s competition, courtesy of the NFL:

Cincinnati’s LEON HALL made two tackles and three interceptions returning them for a combined 87 yards, including a 50-yard touchdown return in the Bengals’ 14-0 win against the Cleveland Browns.

Tennessee’s JASON JONES had 3.5 sacks, forced three fumbles and recorded five tackles in the Titans’ 31-14 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Baltimore’s ED REED notched two interceptions and added a tackle in the Ravens’ 33-24 win over the Dallas Cowboys on NFL Network’s Saturday Night Football.

Washington’s JASON TAYLOR had two sacks and caused a forced fumble that set-up the Redskins’ only touchdown in their 10-3 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Seattle’s JOSH WILSON contributed five tackles including a sack and three defensed passes including two interceptions to Seattle’s defensive effort as the Seahawks defeated the New York Jets 13-3.
