The NFL announced its three players of the week in the NFC for Week 2 of the 2014 NFL season.
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week, Chicago Bears CB Kyle Fuller was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week, and Arizona Cardinals KR Ted Ginn Jr. was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week.
Sproles caught seven passes for 152 yards and ran the ball four times for 26 yards and a touchdown as the Eagles came back to beat the Colts on Monday night. Sproles had catches of 57 and 51 yards during the contest with the latter catch setting up Jeremy Maclin’s game-winning touchdown in the fourth quarter. He was the first back in 20 years with two catches of more than 50 yards and a rushing touchdown in the same game.
Fuller won after his two-pick performance against the 49ers. Those plays sparked a comeback from a 17-0 deficit, and led the Bears back to a road win.
Ginn got the award for a 71-yard touchdown that helped the Cardinals beat the Giants. The Cardinals were trailing with 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter, but Ginn raced through the Giants’ punt team and into the end zone to give Arizona a lead it wouldn’t relinquish.
