The NFL announced its three players of the week in the NFC for Week 10 of the 2014 NFL season.
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week, Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week, and Philadelphia Eagles PR Darren Sproles was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week.
For the second time this season, Rodgers won the award after beating down the Chicago BEars, this time to the tune of an 18-of-27, 315 yard performance with an NFL record-tying 6 TDs in the first half. The Packers led the Bears 45-0 before winning 55-14.
Patrick Peterson won the award thanks to a game-winning INT-TD to help finish a comeback against the St. Louis Rams. The big performance was sorely needed after starting QB Carson Palmer went down with a season-ending ACL tear in the second half.
Sproles scored two TDs for the Eagles in an incredible all-around performance against the Panthers on Monday Night Football. Sproles had a 65-yard punt return TD in the 3rd quarter after a rushing TD in the first quarter.
Ironically, this is the 2nd time this season and Rodgers and Sproles have been Players of the Week at the same time. Both won the award in Week 3.
