NFL Players of the Week – Week 6


AFC Player of the Week:

Le’Veon Bell

Stats: 32 Rushes, 179 Yards, 1 Touchdown, 3 Receptions, 12 Yards

Similar to their playoff win in January, Pittsburgh dominated the line of scrimmage against Kansas City. The Steelers desperately needed a dominating performance from their RB; and Bell provided it. Bell averaged 5.6 yards per carry that included his longest run of the day of 27 yards. Bell and the Steelers bounced back from their horrible Week 5 loss to Jacksonville.


NFC Player of the Week:

Adrian Peterson

Stats: 26 Rushes, 134 Yards, 2 Touchdowns

After only being in Arizona for a few days, the 32 year-old Adrian Peterson put in some work against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In his four games with New Orleans, Peterson only racked up a total of 87 yards. Sunday was a different story, however. Peterson averaged 5.2 yards per carry that did not include a 47-yard run that was called back due to a penalty.
