The NFL announced its three players of the week in the AFC for Week 12 of the 2014 NFL season.
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week, Oakland Raiders Safety Charles Woodson was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week, and Buffalo Bills RB Anthony “Boobie” Dixon was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.
Forsett won the award for the 2nd time in three weeks after a career-high 182 yards on 22 carries while scoring twice more in Baltimore’s 34-27 victory against the Saints in New Orleans on Monday night.
Woodson won the award after he totaled nine tackles (six solo), including three tackles for loss, one sack and one pass defensed in the Raiders’ 24-20 victory over Kansas City on Thursday night. Woodson also became the first player in NFL history to record 50 INTs and 20 sacks for a career.
Dixon won after recording a blocked punt against the New York Jets that was recovered by Manny Lawson for a game-sealing TD in Buffalo’s 38-3 win after missing out on practice due to snow accumulation in upstate New York.
