New York Jets quarterback Josh McCown has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in a 38-31 win over the Chiefs last Sunday.

McCown threw for 311 yards and one passing touchdown and two rushing touchdowns.

McCown’s 5 rushing touchdowns this season is tied with Cowboys Dak Prescott for most in the NFL by a quarterback.

“The dude’s 38, but it looks like he’s 26 out there,” Jermaine Kearse said to NewYorkJets.com on McCown. “He’s been huge for us. His leadership throughout the week, throughout the whole season has just allowed us to continue to get better and better.”

McCown, an outspoken Christian, has shared his testimony with Sports Spectrum in an interview done in December of 2013.

“When I sit in my quiet moments, I say I want to please God, my heart is to please God, and there’s gotta be faith involved, and there’s gotta be things and elements in my life where I can’t see what’s coming next. If anything, it has encouraged me to push myself in those moments as much as I can.”
