Defensive end Lamarr Houston was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week for his strong play against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Houston forced a fumble early in overtime that cornerback Joselio Hanson recovered deep in Jaguars territory. Sebastian Janikowski kicked the game-winning field goal two plays later.
Houston also sacked Chad Henne and made several impressive plays against the run in spearheading a Raiders defensive effort that held the Jaguars to 54 yards offense after halftime.
