Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his effort in the Raiders record-setting 59-14 win over the Denver Broncos at INVESCO Field at Mile High in 2010 NFL Regular Season Week 7 action.

McFadden ran for 165 yards on just 16 carries and scored three touchdowns on the ground. He also caught two passes for 31 yards including another score. His four touchdowns tied a franchise single-game record. His 57-yard touchdown run in the third quarter marked a career-high for the Arkansas product.

McFadden has recorded at least 120 total yards in all five games that he has played in this season.

This marks the second AFC Player of the Week award for the Raiders this season. FS Michael Huff was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in the Silver and Black's 35-27 win over the San Diego Chargers in Week 5. QB Jason Campbell earned the GMC Never Say Never Moment that week via fan voting on NFL.com as well.
