Gurley had 23 rushing attempts for 132 yards and two touchdowns. He also chipped in as a pass catcher with three receptions that totaled 33 receiving yards.
For what started as a slow game on the ground, Gurley managed to hit his stride in the second half and torched the Lions for multiple big runs. This is impressive because since acquiring DT Damon “Snacks” Harrison, the Lions were one of the best run-stopping teams in the league.
This is Gurley’s second time winning the award this year with the first time coming in week six. The award is just another step towards where Gurley would like to find himself: in the running for the MVP or Offensive Player of the Year awards. Regardless, Gurley has been outstanding as usual and looked fully recovered from the ankle issue that seemingly bugged him in the Kansas City Chiefs game.
