Westbrook is NFC Offensive Player of the Week

Running back BRIAN WESTBROOK of the Philadelphia Eagles was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for the third week of the 2007 season (September 23-24).


  • Westbrook scored three touchdowns and became the seventh player since the 1970 merger to record 110+ rushing yards and 110+ receiving yards in the same game as the Eagles defeated the Detroit Lions 56-21. Westbrook set a career-high with 221 scrimmage yards, rushing for 110 yards and two touchdowns while adding five catches for 111 yards and another score. Philadelphia’s 56 points were the most scored by the team in the regular season since 1953, when the club downed the Chicago Cardinals 56-17.

In his sixth season from Villanova, this is Westbrook’s first career Offensive Player of the Week Award. Westbrook was named the NFC Special Teams Player of Week 7 in 2003.
