Another exciting week of NFL play has come to an end and we’re honoring the best performers of the week with awards in various categories. There were a lot of quality players and outstanding performances but not everyone could get acknowledged. For instance, we had to leave off Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson, who had 9 catches for 229 yards and three touchdowns, in favor of a player more deserving of offensive player of the week honors.

OFFENSIVE PLAYER: Nick Foles, QB, Philadelphia Eagles

This shouldn’t come as any surprise, he had one of the greatest single game performances by a quarterback in NFL history. He completed 22 of 28 passes for 406 yards, 7 touchdowns and no interceptions. He also did that in three quarters basically. That game him a 158.3 passer rating as well.

DEFENSIVE PLAYER: Cameron Wake, DE, Miami Dolphins

Cameron Wake was clutch for the Dolphins on Thursday Night Football. Look at this stat line: 5 total tackles, 3 sacks, 2 tackles for loss, and a fumble recovery. One of those three sacks was in the end zone for a safety, a game-winning two points in over time. How often does a defensive player sack a quarterback for a game-winning safety.

ROOKIE OFFENSIVE PLAYER: Eddie Lacy, RB, Green Bay Packers

Lacy had a huge game for the Packers on Monday night in a losing effort. The highlight play of the game might have been his monstrous 56-yard run. Lacy finished the game with 150 yards on 22 carries and a touchdown. That is an average of 6.8 yards per carry.

ROOKIE DEFENSIVE PLAYER: Paul Worrilow, LB, Atlanta Falcons

Worrilow quietly had a dominating game against the Panthers. He hat 19 total tackles against the Carolina Panthers in a losing effort. Could you imagine if he hadn’t made all those tackles?
