NFL Announces AFC Players of the Week for Week 11

The NFL revealed its AFC Players of the Week for Week 11, and they include a future Hall of Famer playing at the peak of his powers and a veteran linebacker who stuffed the stat sheet at his home away from home. On offense, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce earned the award for nabbing six of his 10 targets for 115 yards and an amazing three touchdowns. His stellar play empowered the Chiefs to a thrilling 30-27 win over the Los Angeles Chargers and moved his team into a dominant position in the AFC West. With 11 receiving touchdowns and seven more games to play, Kelce has a shot at breaking Rob Gronkowski's tight end record for receiving touchdowns in a season. Gronk nabbed 17 in 2011.

On defense, Buffalo Bills linebacker Matt Milano takes home the honors for his impressive performance against the Cleveland Browns. The Bills were forced to host the Browns in Detroit following a massive snowstorm in the Buffalo area, but they made Ford Field feel just like home, cruising to a comfortable 31-23 win. Milano totalled 12 tackles for his team, including one sack and three tackles for loss.

As for special teams, New England Patriots defensive back Marcus Jones was rightly the star of the week. Jones returned a New York Jets punt 84 yards for a game-winning touchdown with only five seconds remaining in regulation, lifting his team to a crucial 10-3 win against their division rivals.
