Reggie Bush, J.J. Watt and Adam Jones had their stellar Week 2 performances highlighted by the NFL.

Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush, Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt and Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam Jones have been named AFC Players of the Week for Week 2 in the NFL.

Bush rushed for 172 yards on 25 carries on Sunday vs. the Oakland Raiders, the highest single game total through the NFL's first two weeks. He also added two touchdowns on runs of 23 and 65 yards. Entering Week 3, Bush is second in the NFL in rushing behind C.J. Spiller of the Buffalo Bills.

Watt had another dominant performance in Week 2, picking up five tackles, 1.5 sacks and two pass deflections. Watt, who has three sacks in 2012, is already more than halfway to the 5.5. sacks he totaled in 2011.

Jones started off the scoring in the Bengals' matchup with the Cleveland Browns on Sunday with an 81-yard punt return early in the first quarter. It was Jones' fifth punt return of his career, and his first since 2006.
