Two Bengals Nominated For AFC Offensive Player of the Week

Rob Foldy-US PRESSWIRE

Anytime you score 34 points and limit the opposition to only ten, you're going to have a handful of contributors receiving recognition.

Though it's hard not to imagine the AFC Offensive Player of the Week going to anyone other than Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice -- led all AFC running backs with 164 yards from scrimmage, including a huge fourth and 29 conversion -- a couple of Cincinnati Bengals were also nominated for the award handed out by the NFL every week.

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis were each nominated during Cincinnati's 34-10 win over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

Dalton generated a passer rating of 109, recording 210 yards passing, three touchdowns and no picks. Dalton won the AFC Offensive Player of the Week during Cincinnati's win over the New York Giants in Week 10. Green-Ellis finished the game against Oakland with 129 yards rushing on 19 carries with one touchdown, averaging 6.8 yards/rush (or doubling his season averaging).

The Bengals have won three player of the week awards, including Dalton, Michael Johnson in Week Three and Adam Jones in Week Two.
