BRONCOS RB C.J. ANDERSON NAMED AFC OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos running back C.J. Anderson was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in Denver’s 30-24 overtime win against the New England Patriots, the NFL informed the Broncos on Wednesday.

The award represents the second conference recognition of Anderson’s career and the 59th time a Broncos player has taken home AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors. He previously received the honor in Week 17 last season (vs. Oak., 12/28).

Anderson rushed for 113 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries (7.5 avg.) and caught four passes for 40 yards (10.0 avg.) against New England to represent his fourth career 100-yard rushing game. He sealed the win for Denver with a 48-yard touchdown run in overtime—the fourth-longest overtime touchdown run in NFL history.

This marks the second consecutive week a Bronco has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week (QB Brock Osweiler) to mark the third time a player has represented Denver with the honor in back-to-back weeks since the award was initiated by the NFL in 1984 (RB Mike Anderson, Weeks 13-14, 2000; QB Gary Kubiak & QB John Elway, Weeks 9-10, 1984).
