Anytime you record 10 receptions for 222 yards receiving and a touchdown, people tend to take notice of that. Along with hauling in a 78-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter, Owens was responsible for seven of the team's ten biggest plays against the Browns, including three receptions that went 20 yards or more. As a result, Owens was nominated this week for the AFC Offensive Player of the Week. This week's list includes:

  • Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco: 24 of 37 passes, 256 yards and a touchdown against the Steelers
  • Chargers tight end Antonio Gates: 7 receptions, 144 yards receiving, two touchdowns
  • New York Jets running back Shonn Greene: 117 yards rushing on 22 carries
  • Browns running back Peyton Hillis: 102 yards rushing on 27 carries and a touchdown
  • Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton: 35 of 50 passes for 341 yards and two touchdowns
  • Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers: 15 of 20 passes for 241 yards and two touchdowns

If the Bengals had beaten the Browns, Owens could have won this week's AFC Offensive Player of the Week award. Instead, the award goes to Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson, who recorded 133 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 19 carries.
