Said Horton: "I've just been doing what I've been doing all my life, and that's playing football and making plays. I don't look at it like I have to show people what I can do. All I needed was the opportunity. I got the opportunty and now I'm making the most of it."
It's the second award handed down from the NFL to Horton this season. He was also named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 2.
