Denver Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week.

It's the first time Hillman has been honored with the conference recognition.

Sunday, Hillman had a career-high 117 yards with one touchdown on 15 carries and two receptions for 10 yards against the San Diego Chargers, the broncos said.

His 23-yard, game-winning touchdown run with less than five minutes remaining helped the Broncos clinch their fifth consecutive division title and the AFC’s No. 1 seed.

This is the sixth AFC Player of the Week honor for the Broncos this season.
