Eagles quarterback Michael Vick put up another outstanding performance in the 59-28 whopping against the Redskins Monday night, earning him NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors for the second week in a row. He becomes the first player to win the award in back-to-back weeks since former Eagle Randall Cunningham did it in 1998 with the Minnesota Vikings.
Vick became the first player ever to pass for over 300 yards (333), rush for over 50 yds (80), and throw for four touchdowns, while adding two on the ground, in a single game.
With performances like this, Vick could be in the running for another award down the road — Most Valuable Player.
He has been playing incredible this season with almost 1700 yards of offense, 15 touchdowns and no turnovers yet this season. Right now some people believe he is playing better than anybody in the NFL with his team sitting at 6-3, tied for first place in the NFC East with the New York Giants.
Earlier this year, Vick was also named NFL Offensive Player of the Month for September. There have also been reports that the Pro Football Hall of Fame has requested Vick’s jersey from this game and that the Eagles will ship it to them as soon as possible. The 30-year-old quarterback is in his final year of his contract and he if he continues to perform and play well down the stretch, he will definitely be getting a huge pay-day.
