C.J. Anderson Named AFC OPoW

On Sunday, Anderson scored three touchdowns, earning him the AFC's Offensive Player of the Week.

C.J. Anderson had an amazing December, leading the NFL in yards from scrimmage (472 rush/237 rec) and tied for the most touchdowns, with 7.

Last week vs. the Oakland Raiders, Anderson rushed for 87 yards and 3 touchdowns, while adding 2 receptions for 20 yards. Those touchdowns led all players in week 17 and also marked his second game of the season with three scores. Anderson joined former Broncos running back, Terrell Davis, as the only players in franchise history to have multiple games with 3 rushing touchdowns. Davis had three such games in 1998.

For his efforts, Anderson has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week. This marks the 57th time a Broncos player has taken home the award, since it's inception in 1984. What a way for the former undrafted free agent to end his remarkable 2014 regular season campaign.

Anderson finshed the season with 1,173 total yards from scrimmage and 10 TDs, in just seven games as the starter. The Broncos believe they have someone very special behind their future Hall of Fame quarterback.
