BUCS’ RB BOBBY RAINEY NAMED NFC OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK - Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 11.
Rainey, a second-year player claimed off waivers from the Cleveland Browns on Oct. 21, ran for 163 yards on 30 carries and had three total touchdowns in the Bucs’ 41-28 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday at Raymond James Stadium. He became the first Bucs player to produce two rushing touchdowns and one receiving touchdown in the same game.
Rainey, 26, entered the league as a college free agent with the Baltimore Ravens in 2012. He played in college at Western Kentucky, where he produced a school-record 4,542 yards rushing and 35 touchdowns.
