NFL Names Week 17 NFC Players Of The Week

The NFL's Week 17 slate of games may have ended in a tragic way, but on Sunday, we saw some fantastic games with plenty at stake, and now, the NFL has named its NFC Players of the Week.

Offensively, Mike Evans was an absolute star, reeling in 10 catches for 207 yards and 3 Touchdowns. Defensively, Cameron Jordan helped the Saints to a massive upset over the Philadelphia Eagles, making 5 tackles, including 3 sacks and a tackle for loss. On the special teams side of things, Keisean Nixon was key for the Packers, as he took a kick return 105 yards to the house in the key win over the Minnesota Vikings, and while there were plenty of great performances all week long, it's safe to say that the NFL certainly got it right.
