Cornerback Derek Stingley, Jr., fresh off a 2-pick performance in Sunday's win over Denver, **was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week**

Quarterback C.J. Stroud was on the Pat McAfee show two days ago and **shared some eyebrow-raising thoughts** about his teammate.

Stroud, meanwhile, is **second in the Pro Bowl voting**. Not second among rookies. Or second in the AFC South. Second. Tua Tagavailoa is the only player in the entire league with more votes.

The rookie quarterback also **continues to seek growth and improvement**.
