New York Giants' running back Ahmad Bradshaw is the SB Nation New York Player of the Week following his career-best 30-carry, 200-yard performance Sunday in the Giants' 41-27 victory over the Cleveland Browns.

In reality, this week no one is even a close second.

Bradshaw fumbled on his first carry, part of the reason the Giants fell behind, 14-0. After that, though, he was spectacular.

"I just ran angry today. I'm mad at myself for the fumble," Bradshaw said after the game. "I just stayed hard on myself and just tried to use it in running. Just use my anger in running and that's what happened."

Bradshaw was forced to take on the heavy workload when backup Andre Brown suffered a concussion early in the first quarter.

"Ahmad rose up and did an outstanding job. That's a lot of carries; he caught the ball as well out of the backfield. He had an outstanding game," said Giants coach Tom Coughlin.

Honorable mention

New York Yankees' starting pitcher CC Sabathia worked 8.2 innings and surrendered only two runs in a 7-2 ALDS victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday night.
