Collins, Brady Highlight NFL Weekly Honors


Redskins quarterback Todd Collins and Patriots signal-caller Tom Brady highlight the NFL Player’s of the Week for Week 14.  Collins came in for the injured Jason Campbell and led Washington to a 24-16 win over Chicago on Thursday.  He went 15-of-20 for 224 yards and two touchdowns to earn NFC offensive honors.  Brady finished 32-of-46 for 399 yards and four TDs to win the AFC offensive award.  It’s Brady’s 11th weekly honor in his eight-year career.  Brady now has 45 TD passes on the year, four away from Payton Manning’s all-time record.

Seattle safety Marcus Trufant won NFC defensive honors for his three-interception, six-tackle performance against Arizona last Sunday.  Trufant took back one of the picks 84 yards for a score as the Seahawks clinched the NFC West title with the victory.  Green Bay punt returner Will Blackmon won the NFC special teams award.  He became the first player since 1974 to return a punt and a fumble for scores in the same game.  It was the first weekly honor for all three NFC players.

Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil earned AFC defensive honors after posting five tackles, a career-high three sacks, and a forced fumble in Denver’s 41-7 rout of Kansas City.  Houston return man Andre Davis took home the special teams award for his 97-yard kick return for a touchdown in the Texans’ 28-14 win over Tampa Bay.  It was Dumervil’s first weekly honor while Davis earned his second.
