New York, NY ( - Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles, Miami Dolphins safety Michael Thomas and Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker were selected as the AFC's top players for Week 15 of the NFL season.

Charles scored five total touchdowns in Sunday's 56-31 win at Oakland and helped the Chiefs, a year removed from a 2-14 record, clinch a playoff spot. He became the first player in NFL history with at least four touchdown receptions and one touchdown run in a single game.

In all, Charles finished with 215 yards from scrimmage, including 195 receiving yards on eight catches.

Thomas had quite an NFL debut on Sunday, playing a pivotal role in a 24-20 win over New England. He twice thwarted a potential game-winning score late in the fourth quarter, breaking up a would-be TD catch before picking off Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the end zone to seal the victory.

Tucker accounted for all of Baltimore's points in an 18-16 Monday night victory at Detroit. He converted all six of his field goal attempts, including a game-winning 61-yarder with 38 seconds remaining.
