Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell ran all over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday and on Wednesday it was announced that he has won the AFC Offensive Player of the Week Award for Week 14.

Bell had 298 yards from scrimmage against the Bills and set the Steelers’ single-game record with 236 rushing yards on 38 carries. He also tied the team record with three rushing touchdowns in a single game.
