A big game deserves big recognition, and Alvin Kamara has earned the award for NFC Offensive Player of the Week following his efforts against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night. The New Orleans Saints superstar secured 10 receptions for 128 receiving yards and a touchdown catch while running 20 times for another 55 rushing yards, converting a critical late-game third-and-10 with a 12-yard gain.
But this is somehow only Kamara’s second NFC Offensive Player of the Week award in his already-storied NFL career, last doing so after scoring six touchdown runs against the Minnesota Vikings on Christmas Day last season.
Here are your Players of the Week for Week 7:
- NFC Offense: RB Alvin Kamara, New Orleans Saints
- NFC Defense: LB Deion Jones, Atlanta Falcons
- NFC Special Teams: K Graham Gano, New York Giants
- AFC Offense: WR Ja’Marr Chase, Cincinnati Bengals
- AFC Defense: DE Yannick Ngakoue, Las Vegas Raiders
- AFC Special Teams: P Rigoberto Sanchez, Indianapolis Colts
