Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and running back Jeremy Hill were nominations for this week's AFC Offensive Players of the week.

The award was won by Patriots running back Jonas Gray, who rushed for 201 yards on 37 carries and scored four touchdowns during New England's 42-20 win over the Indianapolis Colts.

Andy Dalton completed 16 of 22 passes for 220 yards passing with three touchdowns, securing a career-high 143.9 passer rating. Also during Cincinnati's 27-10 win over the New Orleans Saints, Jeremy Hill rushed for 152 yards on 27 carries.

Also nominated for the weekly award were Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell (204 yards rushing on 33 carries and a touchdown), Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles (159 yards rushing on 20 carries and two touchdowns) and Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill (26 of 34 passing, 240 yards and two touchdowns).

Despite multiple nominations for the league's weekly awards, the Bengals don't have a player with a weekly award yet.
