The NFL announced its three players of the week in the AFC for Week 10 of the 2014 NFL season.
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week, New York Jets Safety Jaiquawn Jarrett was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week, and Kansas City Chiefs FB Anthony Sherman was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.
Forsett, who has set career highs in rushing yards, carries and TDs for the Ravens since taking over the job for Ray Rice, won the award after he ran for a season-high 112 yards and 2 TDs for a 5.6 yards/carry average. His strong performance helped the Ravens overcome the Tennessee Titans.
After 5 straight weeks without recording a turnover, Jarrett matched the Jets season total on his own with 3 turnovers forced on his own. He had 2 INTs (more than the entire team combined up to that point) and a fumble recovery – all career firsts. He also had a full sack and 10 tackles – all of which were career highs. Jarrett’s performance helped the Jets snap an 8-game losing streak and overcome the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Sherman had four tackles and a critical forced fumble for the Chiefs on a punt return in a comeback win over the Buffalo Bills. The Chiefs, who were down 13-3 in the 4th quarter, scored 14 unanswered points thanks to the momentum and won 17-13.
