NFL Reveals AFC Players of the Week for Week 14

The NFL announced its AFC Players of the Week for Week 14, and they include a former first-overall pick finally living up to his billing and an edge rusher who has come out of nowhere to deliver an incredible hot streak.

On offense, Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence gets his flowers for his sensational game against his AFC South rival Tennessee Titans. Lawrence threw for a career-high 368 passing yards on only 42 dropbacks while totalling four touchdowns through the air and on the ground. With the 36-22 win, the Jaguars keep their postseason hopes alive. If things break their way, the division could be on the line when they face the Titans again in their regular season finale.

As for defense, New England Patriots edge rusher Josh Uche gets the nod for his 3.0 sacks and three tackles for loss in his team's 27-13 Monday Night Football win over the Arizona Cardinals. The performance is the culmination of an incredible six-game run for the third-year pass rusher: Uche has notched an amazing 10 sacks since Week 8, the most of any player in the league. He only had four sacks in his previous 26 career appearances.

Finally, Baltimore Ravens defensive lineman Calais Campbell earns the special teams honors for his crucial field goal block in his team's 16-14 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. It's rare for a player of Campbell's stature (literal and figurative) to take home the award; he's a towering 6-8 and a six-time Pro Bowler. But that's how important his fourth-quarter swat was. Stars can play special teams, too.
