Kolb is NFC Player of the Week

Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb was named the NFC Player of the Week today.

Kolb completed 24 of 34 passes (70.6 percent) for 327 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions for a 120.6 passer rating in the Eagles’ 34-14 win over Kansas City. Kolb also scored on a rushing touchdown, the first of his career.

*He became the first quarterback in NFL history to pass for 300 yards in each of his first two career starts. In Week 2, Kolb passed for 391 yards against New Orleans.

* Threw a 64-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver DE SEAN JACKSON, the second onsecutive game the duo has combined for a 60+ yard score. The last Eagles duo to connect on 60+ yard touchdowns in back-to-back games was QB RON JAWORSKI and WR MIKE QUICK in 1985.

*In his third season from Houston, this is Kolb’s first career Player of the Week Award.

Kolb is the sixth Eagles quarterback to be honored and the first since DONOVAN MC NABB in 2004 (Week 13).
