C.J. Anderson Named AFC OPoW

For his efforts against the Patriots, C.J. Anderson was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week.

The Denver Broncos are on a roll. Not only have they won two straight games, but they've had a player take home AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors in back-to-back weeks.

Last week, it was quarterback Brock Osweiler. This week, it's running back C.J. Anderson.

In Week 12 vs. New England, Anderson rushed for 113 yards on 15 carries (7.5 YPC) and two touchdowns, including the game-winner in overtime. 

Anderson's 48-yard touchdown was the fourth-longest overtime rushing score in NFL history. He also caught four passes for 40 yards. 

This award marks the second conference honor of Anderson's career and the 59th time a Bronco has earned it since it's inception.

Earning conference honors in back-to-back weeks has only happened twice before in team history. Mike Anderson won OPoW honors in back-to-back weeks in 2000 (Weeks 13-14) and Gary Kubiak and John Elway pulled it off in 1984 (Weeks 9-10)
