Rice is Offensive Player of the Week

Ray Rice's career day was rewarded with being named AFC Offensive Player of the week. The Baltimore running back rushed for 204 yards and one touchdown in a 24-10 win at Cleveland on Sunday.

This is the second time in his career that Rice has earned the honor. His other one came in Week 15 of last season after he totaled 233 yards and two touchdowns against the Saints.

This is also the second time in three weeks that a Baltimore player has received the offensive player of the week award. Rookie receiver Torrey Smith was named player of the week in Week 12.

Rice ranks second in the NFL in total yards with 1,473 (926 rushing, 547 receiving), trailing only Chicago's Matt Forte.
