Jonathan Taylor's been turning in an astounding season, but he took it to another level on Sunday. And Justin Jefferson's showing was another showcase for one of the best receivers in the game.

Taylor and Jefferson's all-star outings highlighted the league's weekly honor roll as the NFL released its Players of the Week on Wednesday, Grant Gordon of NFL.com reports.

Taylor, the AFC Offensive Player of the Week, had a franchise-record five total touchdowns in the Indianapolis Colts' 41-15 throttling of the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. He had four rushing touchdowns and one more receiving. Taylor tallied 185 rushing yards on 32 carries and his three catches for 19 yards brought his final tally to 204 scrimmage yards.

Against the rival Green Bay Packers, Jefferson keyed the Minnesota Vikings' 34-31 victory with eight receptions for 169 yards and two receiving touchdowns. For his efforts, Jefferson hauled in the first NFC Offensive Player of the Week accolade in his career.
