BEREA -- For the third time this season, a Browns player has been recognized in the AFC as a top athlete.
Quarterback Jason Campbell has been named AFC Player of the Week by the NFL, which he earned after Sunday's 24-18 victory against the Baltimore Ravens.
During the game, Campbell, who sustained a rib injury in the first quarter, tied a career high with three touchdown passes and completed 23 of 35 passes (65.7 percent) for 262 yards with zero interceptions.
All three of Campbell's touchdown passes came from the 20-yard line or closer, against a Ravens defense that entered the game No. 1 in the NFL inside the red zone.

Protecting a 21-18 lead with 6:44 left in the contest, Campbell completed four of five passes for 42 yards, including a fourth-and-1 conversion, and rushed for a 12-yard first down during a 15-play, 67-yard drive that spanned 6:30 to set up a field goal with 14 seconds remaining and secure a Browns victory.
It was the first time the Browns have beaten the Ravens since 2007.
Campbell has not thrown an interception all season, extending his overall streak to 90 attempts without an interception. He became the first Browns quarterback to pass for at least three touchdowns with zero interceptions in a game since Brady Quinn in 2009 (Week 14).

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Campbell is the first Browns quarterback during the Super Bowl era (since 1966) to record a rating of 100-plus in his first two starts with the team. He also joins Derek Anderson (2007) as the only Browns quarterbacks since 1999 to register a rating of 100-plus in back-to-back games.
Campbell joins Travis Benjamin (AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for Week 5) and Spencer Lanning (AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for Week 3) as weekly award winners this season. This is the second Offensive Player of the Week award for Campbell, who also won in Week 15 in 2007, while with the Washington Redskins.
