Congratulations to running back Knowshon Moreno for being named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week
Moreno rushed 22 times for 118 yards (an average of 5.4 yards per carry) and added a touchdown against the Ravens on Sunday. He was also fantastic in pass blocking coverage, completely eliminating the edge rusher time and time again.
Nothing says “take advantage of your last chance” better than winning the Offensive Player of the Week award. Moreno has now given the front office the opportunity to tell Willis McGahee to take a bit more time in his rehab.
Per the team, the Conference Player of the Week honor is the seventh won by a Bronco this season, which leads all NFL teams. Moreno is also in the running to win the AFC Ground Player of the Week award on NFL.com.
