Darrelle Revis earned AFC Defensive Playof of the Week honors for his dominant performance against the Dolphins on Monday night. The Jets beat the Miami 24-6 to get their record back to .500.

Revis made two picks, including a game-changing 100-yard interception return for a touchdown that gave the Jets their first lead of the game. That pick-six tied a Jets franchise record for longest interception return.

Here's video of the return:

Revis was able to impose his will on the game in a matchup against the Dolphins star wide receiver, Brandon Marshall. Marshall caught six passes for more than 100 total receiving yards, but Revis was able to get the better of him in the red zone, keeping Marshall out of the end zone. The stud cornerback live up to his nickname, Revis Island, with four passes defensed in the game.
