Larry Johnson was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week on Tuesday, marking the first time he’s won the honor. In Sunday’s 45-17 win over the Texans, Johnson rushed for a Chiefs’ record 211 yards. It’s the highest single-game output on the ground this season in the NFL. He also scored three touchdowns. Johnson set a career-high by carrying the ball 36 times in the win.
The last Kansas City Chief to win the award was Derrick Blaylock, who won it last season.
