Dolphins' Bush among AFC players of the week

Dolphins running back Reggie Bush, Chargers linebacker Antwan Barnes and Chiefs kicker Ryan Succop have been named AFC players of the week for Week 15 of the NFL season.

Bush took home the offensive award after rushing for a career-high 203 yards with a touchdown on 25 carries in Miami's 30-23 win over Buffalo. He also added six receiving yards, giving him 209 of the Dolphins' 448 yards in the game.

Barnes earned the defensive honor with a career-best four sacks as the Chargers defeated the Baltimore Ravens, 34-14, on Sunday. His sack total for the year is now at 11, which is a new career high for the fifth-year pro.

The special teams award went to Succop, who connected on field goals of 19, 32, 46 and 20 yards as the Chiefs handed the Green Bay Packers their first loss of the season. He has now converted a career-best 21 straight field goals -- the longest active streak in the NFL -- and needs one more to tie the franchise record held by Pete Stoyanovich.
