Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield strengthened his candidacy for NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year by winning another award.

On Wednesday, Mayfield was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in Sunday's 26-18 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Mayfield completed 27-of-37 passes (73 percent) for 284 yards and three touchdowns without an interception and finished with a rating of 121.9 rating. He completed 15 consecutive passes during the game, tying the third-longest streak in team history.

The No. 1 overall pick in April's draft, Mayfield also moved into third place on the all-time list for touchdown passes thrown by an NFL rookie. He has 24 TD passes this season and needs two in Sunday's season finale at Baltimore to tie Peyton Manning (1998) and Russell Wilson (2012) for the record.

Mayfield is 6-6 as an NFL starter and the first Browns quarterback since Bernie Kosar to throw at least one TD pass in 12 consecutive starts. Kosar had a streak of 12 in 1987.

Earlier this season, Mayfield was named the AFC Offensive Rookie of the Month for November.

His biggest competition for the league's rookie of the year award is New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley, the No. 2 overall selection.
