NFL Awards: Week Six Edition

Offensive Player of the Week- Josh Allen, QB Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo quarterback had himself another nice day this week, leading the Bills to a win in Arrowhead. Anytime you can outduel Patrick Mahomes and lead your team to victory in as hostile of an environment as Kansas City, you deserve recognition. Josh Allen didn’t have quite the statistical game as he did last week, but he was clutch when it mattered, and his stats still weren’t too shabby. 27/40 with 329 yards and three scores, adding 32 yards on the ground? Good enough for this award for the second straight week.

Defensive Player of the Week- Quinnen Williams, DT New York Jets

The Jets held the Packers and defending league MVP Aaron Rodgers to ten points this week en route to a 27-10 victory, thanks in no small part to Quinnen Williams. The former third overall pick was a problem for the Green Bay offense, collecting two sacks, three QB hits, two tackles for loss, and a forced fumble. He was even a problem on special teams, blocking a field goal.  

Special Teams Player of the Week- Ryan Wright, P Minnesota Vikings

Minnesota was forced to punt ten times, and they still won. Field position is important in close games, and the Vikings won the field position battle thanks to Ryan Wright. Wright punted 10 times for a 44.1 average, including a long of 73 yards, and six punts landing inside the 20 yard line. 

Offensive Rookie of the Week- Bailey Zappe, QB New England Patriots

Rookie quarterback Bailey Zappe has been filling in nicely with Mac Jones on the mend. This week, he led the Patriots to a convincing 38-15 victory, finishing the game with 309 yards and two touchdowns on 24/34 passing. The Patriots are 2-0 in Zappe starts. Could a quarterback controversy be brewing in New England?

Defensive Rookie of the Week- Kayvon Thibodeaux, LB New York Giants

Kayvon Thibodeaux had struggled to live up to his billing as the fifth overall pick. This week he came up big. While he doesn’t have the gaudiest of stats, he came up with a clutch sack and forced fumble of Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson to close out the Giants’ comeback upset win over the Ravens. Stats are nice, but big plays in the moment win out every day of the week and twice on Sundays.

Peng-Losing Moment of the Week- Matt Rhule

Whenever a coach gets fired during the season it’s an automatic L. The Rhule regime has come to an end with a whimper. The Panthers get a head start to their coaching search while they look to rebuild.
