Cincinnati Bengals running back Jeremy Hill had a fantastic afternoon in the friendly confines of FirstEnergy Stadium. Facing off an angry defense that felt slighted from his comments on Nov. 6, Hill powered through the line of scrimmage like a man escaping a Julia Roberts movie on date night.

At the end of the game, he rushed for 148 yards and posted two rushing touchdowns.

The performance earned him a nomination for Pepsi Rookie of the Week and the FedEx Ground Player of the Week.

FEDEX GROUND PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Also nominated for this award are Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch and Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy. Lynch rushed for 91 yards on 21 carries and scored a touchdown during Seattle's 17-7 win over the San Francisco 49ers. Eddie Lacy ran for 97 yards on 15 attempts and score a touchdown against the Buffalo Bills.
