The Jaguars' Fred Taylor has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in the Jaguars' 24-10 victory over the Baltimore Ravens last Sunday.
Taylor, filling in for the injured James Stewart, had a 52-yard touchdown run on his first carry, the longest run in team history during the regular season. With 128 yards rushing, Taylor became the first Jaguars rookie to rush for 100 yards in a single game and set the team record for most rushing yards in a regular season game (the previous record was 115 yards set by James Stewart against Chicago on opening day). Also, his 213 combined yards (128 rushing, 85 receiving on team-leading nine catches) ranks second in Jaguars history.
Last week against Kansas City, Reggie Barlow was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for an 85 yard punt return for a touchdown and 134 total yards on punt returns, and in Week One James Stewart was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his 115 yards rushing and two touchdowns in the season opener at Chicago.
