On top of that, Taylor also has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Month twice, in October and November of 2002.
Taylor became the second Dolphins player to be named AFC Defensive Player of the Week this season. Safety Lance Schulters also got the nod for his performance in the Sept. 25 game against Carolina after his late interception set up the game-winning touchdown.
Punter Donnie Jones also had a big game against Oakland on Sunday, averaging 51.3 yards with a net of 47 yards, and he was among the nominees for AFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors. The award went to Jacksonville kick returner Derrick Wimbush.
