The Indianapolis Colts continue to rack up the accolades. This time it's cornerback Cassius Vaughn who was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week after his lights out performance this past Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.
Last week against Tennessee, Vaughn recorded a three-yard interception return for a touchdown in the third quarter to give the Colts a 21-20 lead. The interception was Vaughn’s first this season and the second of his career. In addition, he led the team with eight solo tackles and three passes defensed.
For the season, Vaughn has recorded 51 tackles (43 solo), nine passes defensed and one interception. For his career, he has tallied 73 tackles (61 solo), 13 passes defensed and two interceptions.
