Bengals running back Joe Mixon has been named the FedEx Ground Player of the Week for his performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 4, the NFL announced Wednesday.

Mixon ran 25 times for 151 yards and two touchdowns while also catching six passes for 30 yards and a touchdown in a 33-25 victory. This is Joe Mixon's first FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week award.

Earlier in the day, the NFL named Mixon the AFC Offensive Player of the Week. It's the first time the prize went to a player other than a quarterback this season.

Mixon ranks fifth in the NFL with 315 rushing yards and averages 4.1 yards per carry.
