After being named NFC offensive player of the month for September, Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley has been named NFC offensive player of the week in the first week of October.

Gurley earns the honors after his performance in the Rams 35-30 upset win over the Cowboys. Against Dallas, Gurley had 121 yards rushing on 23 carries and caught seven passes for 94 yards. This is his second time winning NFC offensive player of the month in four weeks.

This adds to Gurley’s already impressive statistical season. He is currently second in the NFL in rushing, behind rookie Kareem Hunt, with 362 yards. Gurley is also second among running backs is receiving yards with 234 on 20 catches. On top of that he leads the NFL in total touchdowns with seven.

Gurley is looking rejuvenated after a sophomore slump in 2016. Gurley is the third running back in NFL history, Jim Brown and Emmitt Smith are the others, to have more than 575 yards from scrimmage and seven touchdowns in the first four games of the season.

I’m Canadian as can be, other than the fact that I don’t care about hockey. I love football. The NFL is my life. I consider myself a football guy and I’d rather watch tape than anything else. I’m the Armchair NFL Draft analyst here. You can read my Armchair Scout columns and call me out for my draft misses. I’m also part of two podcasts at Armchair. Our NFL Draft podcast, 7 Rounds in Heaven, and the main NFL pod, Resting the Starters. I cheer for the Steelers, Raptors, Blue Jays, Oregon, and I guess the Leafs.
