Stop us if you’ve heard this one before, but a Chiefs player won an AFC weekly honor

The NFL weekly honors continue to pile up for the Chiefs.

Running back Kareem Hunt was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week after his big game at Cleveland on Sunday.

Hunt rushed for 91 yards and two touchdowns and took a screen pass 50 yards for the Chiefs’ first score in the 37-21 victory. It’s the second time this season Hunt scored three touchdowns in a game, and his 13 touchdown this season rank second in the NFL only to L.A. Rams running back Todd Gurley, who has 16.

As a rookie last season, Hunt racked up several monthly awards. He was the AFC’s top offensive award winner for September and twice was named the NFL’s offensive rookie of the month.

This season, quarterback Patrick Mahomes won the AFC’s weekly offensive awards for the first two weeks and was player of the month for September. Outside linebacker Dee Ford was the AFC Defensive Player of the Month for October.
