AFC honor for Chambers

After he set franchise records with 15 catches and 238 yards and caught the game-winning touchdown pass in the 24-23 victory over Buffalo, Chris Chambers seemed practically a lock to be named AFC Offensive Player of the Week. That came to fruition on Wednesday when the league made it official.

This is the first time in Chambers' career that he has won the award. He made it back-to-back Player of the Week honors for the Dolphins after Jason Taylor got the nod on defense for his performance in the victory at Oakland.

Chambers, who won NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month honors in November of 2001, is the first Dolphins player to earn AFC Offensive Player of the Week accolades since quarterback Jay Fiedler in week 13 of 2003, in a 40-21 win at Dallas on November 27.

Chambers is the first Dolphins wide receiver to win the award since Mark Ingram in week 13 of 1994, in a 28-24 victory over the New York Jets at the Meadowlands.
