The NFL announced its three players of the week in the NFC for Week 16 of the 2014 NFL season.
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week, Green Bay Packers LB Clay Matthews was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week, and Atlanta Falcons Punter Matt Bosher was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week.
Wilson more than earned his award with 339 passing yards and 88 rushing yards in a 35-6 blowout win over the Arizona Cardinals. Wilson won the award for the second time this year, winning it in Week 5, and joins S Kam Chancellor and CB Richard Sherman as the Seahawks to win the award this season.
Matthews had six tackles, 2.5 sacks and a pass defensed in a 20-6 win over the Bucs that helped them clinch their sixth straight playoff appearance. Matthews and DE Julius Peppers are the only two defenders to win the same award this year. QB Aaron Rodgers has won Offensive Player of the Week three times this season.
Matt Bosher had four of his five punts inside the 20-yard line against the Saints to keep their playoff hopes alive and not allow a single punt return yard.
