Ronnie Hillman earns AFC offensive player of the week

He became a bit of a footnote — and probably rightly so — but Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman did kind of lead his team to the top seed in the AFC playoffs last week.

Hillman got his recognition today, as he was named AFC offensive player of the week.

He ran 15 times for for 117 yards (7.8 yards per carry) and two touchdowns, including the game-winner in the final five minutes.

It was lost in the shuffle of quarterback Peyton Manning coming off the bench to lead them to the win, but if Manning’s going to do more in the playoffs, he’s going to need Hillman to keep running that way.

    Antonio Brown – 13/187/1

    Only 1 td but worth mentioning another big day for the best WR in the league.

    One TD.

    Hillman only ran for 1 touchdown in the game. DT caught one, Anderson rushed for one, and Hillman rushed for the other. Add two field goals and you have 27 points.

    He did indeed have 1 touchdown.

    Yet another reason AB should have gotten AFC POW!

    Peyton will be entering the playoffs with a -8 TD to INT ratio. Worst in NFL history. He’s the ONLY QB in NFL history to start in the playoffs with a -8 ratio. He’s the ONLY QB in history to enter the playoffs with a bye and the number one seed with a passer rating below 70. He’s also the only QB to enter the playoffs with a bye and the number one seed with 17 INT or more. Thanks defense and Brock for the FREE RIDE to the playoffs. LOL. Most Overrated QB of All-Time. Name a QB with those stats that’s gotten a free ride to the playoffs. Pathetic.

    -8 isn’t a ratio, its the difference. His TD to Int ratio was 9 to 17 or 1:1.9. Brock didn’t play great for the most part. he was solid, but it’s really the Defense that got them where they are, and the luck of other teams dropping games they should have won (Patriots). Manning’s playoff performance leaves something to be desired, but its hard to be “the most overrated” when you have most of the major QB records. I assume the “worst in NFL history” part is for playoff quarterbacks or something? Because -8 is definitely not the worst difference in NFL history. You sound like someone that’s just bitter about whatever team you support. There’s plenty of QBs I don’t like that are actually good, but I don’t waste my time bashing them and pretending they suck. Grow up
