Rice named AFC Offensive Player of the Week

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Baltimore Ravens Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week. The honor was no surprise considering that Rice rushed for a career-high 204 yards and one touchdown on 29 carries against the Cleveland Browns. He averaged seven yards per carry and had a career-long 67-yard run

Rice won the award last year, too.

Earlier this season, rookie wide receiver Torrey Smith won the award.

Rice has rushed for 926 yards and nine touchdowns, catching 56 passes for 547 yards and two scores.

"I never really get too high, never really get too low," Rice said. "There was a time this season that people were talking about the carries I was getting. Now there's a time where I find myself second in the NFL for total yardage. I think it's my ability to stay the course. As long as I stay consistent, it will be one of my best years."
