He averaged 8.4 yards per carry and had a long run of 42 yards. It was his third 100-yard rushing game this season and the sixth in his three-year career.
The other nominees this week are Tennessee RB Derrick Henry, who had 18 carries for 103 yards and two TDs in a 42-21 win over Oakland, and Cleveland RB Nick Chubb, who had 15 carries for 106 yards in a 27-19 win over Cincinnati. It was Chubb's sixth 100-yard rushing performance of the season.
