C.J. Anderson named AFC's Offensive Player of the Week

ENGLEWOOD - Neither snow nor cold nor New England Patriot could stop Denver Broncos running back C.J. Anderson on Sunday night.

After his walk-off, 48-yard touchdown run in overtime gave the Broncos a thrilling 30-24 victory against the then-unbeaten Patriots and amassing 153 yards overall rushing and receiving, Anderson was named the AFC's Offensive Player of the Week.

"I was just honored," Anderson said at his locker Wednesday. "It's a blessing. I'm proud about it and happy about it. It's not something where you're just, 'Hey, I'm going to try to go get it.' I just went out there and did my job. It feels good."

Strong Finish for Bears: Late Run Propels Cal Past Stubborn Seattle, 66-52

BERKELEY - Tyrone Wallace scored 14 of his 17 points in the second half and California shook off a sloppy start to beat Seattle 66-52 on Tuesday night.

Trailing 44-41 with nine minutes left, Wallace started a 12-0 run with a thunderous dunk following a steal by Ivan Rabb and later added a pair of fast-break layups.

Jordan Mathews' 3-point play extended Cal's lead to 51-44 before Wallace added two more free throws and another layup.

Jaylen Brown added 11 points and seven rebounds while Mathews had 12 points for the Golden Bears (5-2), who bounced back after falling out of the Top 25 following back-to-back losses to San Diego State and Richmond last week.
