For the second time this season, running back Todd Gurley has been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week.
Gurley amassed 165 yards from scrimmage on 26 touches in Sunday’s 30-16 victory over the Lions, picking up 132 on the ground and 33 through the air. Gurley also had a pair of rushing touchdowns in the NFC West-clinching win.
The Georgia product was also named NFC Player of the Week back in October for his Week 6 performance in the victory over the Broncos. In that game, Gurley had 28 rushes for 208 yards with a pair of rushing touchdowns.
Gurley currently leads the league with 1,175 yards rushing, 15 rushing touchdowns (a career high), 1,649 yards from scrimmage, and 19 total touchdowns. He was October’s NFC Offensive Player of the Month after picking up 462 yards rushing, 157 yards receiving, and nine total touchdowns in four games.
Los Angeles has now received seven NFC Player of the Week awards in 2018. Kicker Greg Zuerlein (Week 1), safety Blake Countess (Week 3), quarterback Jared Goff (Week 4), Gurley (Week 6), defensive tackle Aaron Donald (Week 7), and outside linebacker Samson Ebukam (Week 11) have also earned the distinction.
