Ravens Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice's epic 4th-and-29 jaunt already made him a staple on highlight videos.
Now, Rice has picked up a new accolade as the AFC Offensive Player of the Week.
Rice's conversion of what initially looked to be an extreme long shot propelled the Ravens to a 16-13 overtime victory over the San Diego Chargers. His first down with 1:59 remaining off a dump pass set up the game-tying field goal from Justin Tucker.
Rice finished the game with 97 rushing yards and eight catches for 68 yards, generating 164 yards from scrimmage. That was the most among AFC running backs last week.
Rice leads the AFC with 1,198 yards from scrimmage on 794 rushing yards and 404 receiving yards.
Rice has been named the Offensive Player of the Week four times, but it's his first this year.
