Who saw this coming a month ago?
Denver Broncos running back Knowhon Moreno has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week. In the Broncos’ Week 15 34-17 thumping of the Baltimore Ravens, Moreno had 22 carries for 118 yards and a touchdown. He also caught two passes for eight yards.
After being inactive for much of the season, Moreno has surpassed expectations in replacing Broncos’ leading rusher Willis McGahee, who is eligible to return to game action should Denver reach the AFC championship game.
Since replacing McGahee four games ago, Moreno has rushed for 391 yards. During that time, he also has 96 receiving yards.
Denver now has seven different players with Player of the Week honors this season – in all three phases of the game.
