Browns running back Peyton Hillis has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance this past Sunday in Cleveland's 34-14 win against the New England Patriots.

Hillis had a career-high 29 carries for a career-high 184 yards and two touchdowns. He also finished with three catches for 36 yards, giving him a career-high 220 all-purpose yards.

Hillis has never won the award before, and he is the first Browns player to earn it since former Cleveland quarterback Derek Anderson garnered it during Week 2 of the 2007 season. Hillis is the fourth Browns player and the team's first running back to win the award since 1999.
