Buckhalter

We’re going with Denver running back Correll Buckhalter for this week’s honors.

Buckhalter led the Denver offensive attack in a complete 23-3 win over Oakland. Buckhalter had 108 yards on 14 carries. Rookie Knowshon Moreno helped with 90 yards on 21 carries.

Buckhalter ran hard and often brought a couple of Oakland defenders with him as he gained extra yards. Denver’s win was fueled on the ground as it wore down Oakland with Buckhalter, who signed as a free agent from Philadelphia, leading the the way.
