Aqib Talib is your first Defensive Player of the Week for the 2015 season.

The star Broncos cornerback keyed a dominant defensive effort against the Baltimore Ravens last weekend -- then effectively ended the game with a pick-six.

The Broncos wouldn't relinquish the lead after Talib's 51-yard return in the third quarter. They needed the points; the Broncos ended up winning for the 10th time without scoring an offensive touchdown.
