This week was a terrible week for offensive performers. So bad that I only gave two honorable mentions. However, the defense more than made up for it, with numerous people have incredible games.
Star No. 1 – Ahmad Bradshaw, RB, New York Giants – Bradshaw had a phenomenal game, rushing for over 100 yards and having 3TDs.
Star No. 2 – Michael Turner, RB, Atlanta Falcons – Turner had his best game of the season, carrying the Falcons to victory with 140 yards and 2 TDs.
Star No. 3 – Fred Jackson, RB, Buffalo Bills – Jackson continued his reign of dominance this season, with over 150 total yards and 1 TD.
Honorable Mentions: Rashard Mendenhall, Aaron Rodgers, Frank Gore
Star No. 1 – Darrelle Revis, CB, New York Jets – Despite getting consistently burned by Brandon Marshall, giving up over 100 yards, Revis made two big splash plays, taking one 100 yards to the house.
Star No. 2 – Kurt Coleman, S, Philadelphia Eagles – Coleman dominated Sexy Rexy, picking him off three times and finishing with 7 tackles.
Star No. 3 – Corey Webster, CB, New York Giants – Webster had a phenomenal day reading Ryan Fitzpatrick, finishing with 2 INTs and 5 tackles.
Honorable Mentions: Calvin Pace, Aldon Smith, OJ Atogwe, Brett Keisel, LaMarr Woodley, Andre Carter, Demarcus Ware, Julius Peppers, Aaron Maybin
Dud of the Week: Rex Grossman, QB, Washington Redskins – Sexy Rexy just did not have it this week. He threw for just 143 yards and 4 INTs and got benched in favor of John Beck. How embarrassing is that?
