Philip Rivers Named AFC Offensive Player of the Week

For the eighth time in his career, Philip Rivers earned AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors.

His impressive performance in Week 12's 28-6 Thanksgiving Day victory over the Dallas Cowboys earned him the award. 

In the Pro Bowl performance, Rivers threw for 434 yards and was 27-for-33 passing with three touchdowns.  It marked the second time in his career that he threw for over 400 yards with three TDs and no interceptions.  He finished the game with a 149.1 rating and an 81.8 completion percentage.  The 149.1 rating is the second-best by a QB this season, and the third-best rating of Rivers' career.
