Brandon Marshall To Be Named AFC Offensive Player of the Week

Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall will be named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for games played during the second week (Sept. 14-15) of the 2008 season, the National Football League informed the Broncos on Tuesday.

Marshall's selection as AFC Offensive Player of the Week marks the first such award of his three-year NFL career.

During the Broncos' 39-38 win against San Diego on Sunday, Marshall tied for the second-most catches in a game in NFL history with 18 receptions for 166 yards (9.2 avg.) with one touchdown. Marshall's reception total, which was double that of the next closest player for Week 2, was the highest single-game total in the NFL in eight seasons (Terrell Owens had a league-record 20 catches for San Francisco vs. Chicago 12/17/00).

In his last five games dating back to 2007, Marshall has posted the most catches in NFL history for any five-game period with 55 receptions for 577 yards (10.5 avg.) with four scores. He has totaled at least 10 catches along with 100 receiving yards in four of his last five games and leads the NFL in receptions (18) through Week 2.

A 2006 fourth-round pick (119th overall) by the Broncos from the University of Central Florida, Marshall now owns five 100-yard receiving games and four 10-catch games for his NFL career.

Marshall is the first Bronco to be named AFC Offensive Player of the Week since 2005 (wide receiver Rod Smith, Wk. 15 at Buffalo). His selection marks the 42nd time a Broncos player has received AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors since the award was initiated by the NFL in 1984
