 New  York, NY  (Sports  Network) -  Baltimore Ravens  running  back Ray  Rice,
 Cleveland Browns linebacker D'Qwell Jackson and Indianapolis' T.Y. Hilton have
 been selected as the AFC's top players for Week 12 of the NFL season.
 Rice  picked  up the offensive award  after totaling 67 receiving yards and 97
 yards  on the  ground as the Ravens  rallied to beat San Diego in overtime. He
 helped  force overtime by taking a short pass and converting a 4th-and-29 late
 in  the  fourth quarter. Six plays  later, Justin Tucker nailed the game-tying
 field goal.
 Jackson  garnered  the defensive honor  after posted a team-high nine tackles,
 one  forced fumble  and one  fumble  recovery in  the Browns'  20-14 win  over
 Pittsburgh. He was part of a unit that registered eight takeaways.
 The  rookie  Hilton was  recognized as  the top  special teams performer after
 returning  a  punt 75 yards  for a touchdown in  the Colts' 20-13 victory over
 Buffalo.  He also recorded an 8-yard touchdown reception in the game, becoming
 the  first player  in Colts  history to  have a  punt-return TD  and touchdown
 reception in the same game.
