I mentioned earlier this week that Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles was nominated for the FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week. In my writeup, I said Charles is unlikely to win that award because his opponent that week, Jerome Harrison of the Cleveland Browns, racked up the third best rushing day in NFL history.
Well, that may be the case with that award but in another award, even Harrison didn't win. Ben Roethlisberger threw for over 500 yards last weekend and brought home of the AFC offensive player of the week award.
So, the Chiefs aren't a quality enough opponent for someone who puts up the third best rushing day in NFL history to win a player of the week award?
Don't worry, though, Chiefs fans. Our ineptitude did win an award for one other player.
Josh Cribbs was named the AFC's special teams player of the week after gouging the Chiefs for two touchdowns last Sunday.
Let's see if we can be on the other end of one of these awards this weekend in Cincinnati.
