Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was awarded AFC Offensive Player of the Week, after rushing for a career high 204 yards in the Ravens’ 24-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns this past Sunday.
This is the second time in his career that Rice has earned the award. Last season, in week 15, Rice was awarded the honor, after he totaled 233 yards and two touchdowns against the New Orleans Saints.
Also, this is the second time in the past three weeks a Raven has been honored with the AFC Offensive Player of the Week award. In week 11, rookie wide receiver Torrey Smith was honored with the award for his six catch, 165 yard and one touchdown performance against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Rice now ranks second in the NFL in total yards with 1,473 (926 rushing, 547 receiving), trailing just Matt Forte’s 1,487.
