Isaiah Crowell named AFC Offensive Player of the Week

NFL: Denver Broncos at New York Jets Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

Jets running back Isaiah Crowell has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his huge game in the Week 5 win over the Denver Broncos.

Isaiah Crowell picked a great time to have the best game of his career. It was one of the best in New York Jets history. Naturally, it earned him league-wide recognition. Here are the NFL Players of the Week:

Crowell ran for 219 yards, on just 15 carries, and scored a touchdown to help break the Jets’ three-game skid. The fifth-year running back established a new team record for rushing yards in just his fifth game with the franchise. It was Crowell’s sixth career 100-yard game. Two of them have already come in green, and the last one served as the catalyst to a 34-16 win against the Denver Broncos, earning him AFC Offensive Player of the Week.

Crowell’s 219 yards set a single game franchise record. It was a strong bounceback effort after a poor game against Jacksonville Week 4.

He will look to build on the effort this week against the Colts.
