Le'Veon Bell, Elvis Dumervil win AFC awards
A pair of on-field rivals earned AFC honors for their spectacular performances this past Sunday.
Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week after a superb performance in Pittsburgh's 42-21 win over Cincinnati. Bell carried the ball 26 times for 185 yards and two touchdowns, and also caught six passes for 50 yards and a touchdown.
Ravens outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil was named the AFC Defensive Player of Week after tallying 3.5 sacks against the Miami Dolphins in a 28-13 win. Dumervil repeatedly got after quarterback Ryan Tannehill and helped limit the Dolphins in the passing game. His 3.5 sacks puts him at 16 for the year, which set a new Ravens single-season record.
