Oakland Raiders' Michael Bush Named AFC Offensive Player Of The Week

The Oakland Raiders's MIchael Bush has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week after his dominant performance against the San Diego Chargers on Thursday Night Football. Bush rushed for 157 yards and a touchdown, and had 242 total yards from scrimmage in the Raiders 24-17 victory. It was Bush's second start and third lengthy performance in a row in place of Darren McFadden. In those three games, Bush has 352 rushing yards and is averaging 5.3 yards per carry.

The Raiders win over San Diego was huge for divisional purposes as they seem to be coming together under new QB Carson Palmer. By the end of the weekend, the Raiders were a game up on the rest of the division and will look to build on that lead against the Minnesota Vikings. It was a complete team effort and the players are being rewarded accordingly. Bush has also been nominated for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week and Denarius Moore has been nominated for the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week.
