If you happened to tune in for Sunday's game between the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers, you probably noticed that Lions safety Tracy Walker was playing like he was trying to prove a point.
During the game, Walker racked up a career-high 13 tackles and he even had that game-sealing interception.
Because of his efforts, Walker has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week.
This is the first time a Lions defensive player has won the award since 2014 when S Glover Quin did so.
