Bears defensive end Adewale Ogunleye was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 1 of the NFL season. Ogunleye recorded 6 tackles — including three for a loss — against Indianapolis Sunday night, none more important than his tackle of Colts’ running back Joseph Addai in the end zone that resulted in a safety. Ogunleye also stopped Dominic Rhodes in the backfield on a fourth down try in the fourth quarter.
