For the second time this season, J.J. Watt is the AFC Defensive Player of the Week.

This time, he earned the honor for his role in the Texans' AFC South-clinching win over the Colts last Sunday.

Watt had 10 tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble to lead the Texans to a 29-17 win.

Watt now stands at 19.5 sacks this season, tied for the NFL lead with San Francisco's Aldon Smith. Michael Strahan's single-season record of 22.5 is in reach.

This was the second time he was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week. He's a frontrunner for Defensive Player of the Year and might garner some MVP consideration in his second NFL season.
