WR Greg Jennings Named NFC Offensive Player of the Week

Posted Nov 24, 2010

Wide receiver Greg Jennings of the Green Bay Packers, defensive end Julius Peppers of the Chicago Bears and punt returner-cornerback Bryan Mc Cann of the Dallas Cowboys are the NFC Offensive, Defensive and Special Teams Players of the Week for games played the 11th week of the 2010 season (November 18, 21-22), the NFL announced today.

 

OFFENSE: WR GREG JENNINGS, GREEN BAY PACKERS

  • Jennings had seven catches for 152 yards (21.7 average) and a career-high three touchdowns in the Packers’ 31-3 win at Minnesota. 
  • He became the third player in franchise history to record at least seven catches, 150 receiving yards and three touchdown receptions in the same game, joining ANTONIO FREEMAN (December 20, 1998) and JAVON WALKER (September 26, 2004). 
  • Jennings had touchdown catches of 11, 46 and 22 yards.  In his career, he has 37 touchdown receptions and 15 have been at least 40 yards (40.5 percent).  He averages 32.5 yards per TD catch, the second-best mark among active players with at least 20 touchdown receptions. 
  • He has at least six catches in five consecutive games and is the first Packer to accomplish the feat since STERLING SHARPE (1993). 
  • In his fifth season from Western Michigan, this is Jennings’ first career Player of the Week Award.
  • He is the first Packers wide receiver to be honored since Freeman in Week 16, 1998.  Jennings is the seventh wide receiver in team history to be named Offensive Player of the Week. 

 

DEFENSE: DE JULIUS PEPPERS, CHICAGO BEARS

  • Peppers had six tackles, three sacks and deflected a pass which led to an interception in the Bears’ 16-0 shutout victory at Miami. 
  • He tied his career-high with three sacks and it marked his eighth three-sack game since entering the league in 2002, the most by any player over that span. 
  • Peppers was part of a Chicago defense that registered six sacks and allowed 39 rushing yards.  It was the first time since 1963, the first year team sacks were officially recorded, that the Bears posted a regular-season shutout in which they recorded at least six sacks and allowed fewer than 40 rushing yards. 
  • In his ninth year from North Carolina, this is Peppers’ fourth career Player of the Week Award and first as a member of the Bears.  He was last honored in Week 8, 2009 with Carolina.    
  • He is the first Chicago defensive end to be named Defensive Player of the Week since ADEWALE OGUNLEYE in Week 1, 2008. 

 

SPECIAL TEAMS: PR-CB BRYAN MC CANN, DALLAS COWBOYS

  • McCann had a 97-yard punt-return touchdown in the Cowboys’ 35-19 win over Detroit. 
  • McCann, who had a 101-yard interception-return touchdown in Week 10, is the first rookie in NFL history to record touchdowns of at least 97 yards in back-to-back games. 
  • He also became just the second player in league annals with touchdowns of 97 yards in each of two consecutive games, joining TONY HORNE (1999), who accomplished the feat on two kickoff returns. 
  • McCann’s 97-yard score is the second-longest punt-return touchdown in franchise history, trailing DENNIS MORGAN’s 98-yard TD in 1974 (October 13). 
  • In his rookie year from Southern Methodist, this is McCann’s second Player of the Week Award in a row.  He was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 10.    
  • He is the first Cowboy to be honored in two different categories in the same season and the first in the NFL since Philadelphia’s DE SEAN JACKSON in 2009 (Special Teams, Weeks 1 and 14; Offense, Week 7).
