For his record-breaking performance against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 14, Brandon Marshall will be named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week. It is the second time in his career he has earned the award.
His 21 receptions set a new NFL single-game mark, and gave him 86 on the year. Marshall set another NFL record in the game, recording the most 10-plus-catch games — eight — in a player’s first four seasons in NFL history.
He now owns two of the top four single-game receiving totals in league history — he caught 18 passes in last season’s home opener against San Diego. He also earned the AFC Offensive Player of the Week award after that performance.
His 21 catches against the Colts went for 200 receiving yards and two touchdowns, upping his season totals to 1,008 and 9, respectively. This is Marshall’s third consecutive 1,000-yard receiving season.
Marshall’s award represents the fifth time a Broncos player has won the weekly honor this season, joining Champ Bailey, Kyle Orton, Eddie Royal and Matt Prater.
This week, the Oakland Raiders head to INVESCO Field at Mile High. Earlier this season, Marshall caught five passes for 67 yards and a touchdown against the division rival.
