Le’Veon Bell: ESPN’s Most Valuable AFC North Player


Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell edged out teammate Ben Roethlisberger as ESPN’s AFC North Most Valuable Player today.  Receiving 12 points from a panel of judges that included Jamison Hensley, Scott Brown and three other sports writers, Bell earned well-deserved recognition for an outstanding 2014 season.

On February 18, Bell turns 23 years of age, but has already created a legacy for himself on the gridiron.  Bell was a close second place in yards from scrimmage and joined Marshall Faulk in NFL record books as the only players to gain at least 1,350 rushing yards and 850 receiving yards in a single season.

Bell may have led the league were it not for an unfortunate knee injury that kept him out of the Steelers’ final game in the AFC Wild Card round against the Baltimore Ravens.

Roethlisberger earned 8 points in the voting after tying New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees for most passing yards during 2014 (4,925 total).

Other players who received votes: JoeFlacco, 4; Justin Forsett, 3; Antonio Brown, 2; Jeremy Hill, 1.
