Marvin Jones is the AFC offensive player of the week

Take a seat, Peyton Manning.  Cool your jets, Jamaal Charles.  Slam your hand in a door, Tom Brady.  (Wait, he already did.)

In a conference containing some of the best offensive players of the past generation, a second-year receiver has claimed the honors for AFC offensive player of the week for Week Eight of the 2013 season.

Marvin Jones earned it, with a franchise-record four touchdown passes in a 49-9 romp over the Jets.

It was the first time any player caught four touchdown passes since Randy Moss and Terrell Owens did it on the same day in 2007.

That’s good company for a receiver who was selected after Justin Blackmon, Michael Floyd, Kendall Wright, A.J. Jenkins, Brian Quick, Stephen Hill Alshon Jeffrey, Ryan Broyles, Rueben Randle, DeVier Posey, T.J. Graham, Mohamed Sanu, T.Y. Hilton, Chris Givens, Travis Benjamin, Joe Adams, Devon Wylie, Jarius Wright, Keshawn Martin, Nick Toon, Greg Childs, and Danny Coale.

    This kid is a special talent. Now that someone convinced Dalton that AJ Green isn’t the only receiver on the team I look for this success to continue.

    Reminds me so much of Chad. Talent wise anyways. Can’t wait to watch him again tomorrow.

    Interesting thing about that draft is that after the seniorbowl, MJ had worked his way up to supposedly being a 2nd round pick. Fans (draft junkies) of all teams knew about him, but for some reason he still fell to the 5th round. Lucky for the Bengals.

    Way to go Marvin! Well spoken, humble, hard working…. Bengals have a lot of guys like this now. 6-2!

    Four touchdown PASSES? Not bad for a RECEIVER.

    The league has been served notice. You can’t just double AJ Green and shut down their passing game any more.

    And if you roll extra protection toward Green and Jones, Eifert and Gresham will shred you in the middle.

    Seriously, by Florio a long time Steelers fan?
    Every knee in Steeler nation and the AFC North will bow down and admit that the Bengals are the King of this division.

    Bengals used the fifth round pick for Jones that they got from the Patriots in return for Chad Johnson. Karma, dude.
