New York, NY (Sports Network) - Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron
Rodgers, San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis and St. Louis Rams
kicker Greg Zuerlein were named NFC Players of the Week for Week 4.
Rodgers completed 31-of-41 passes for 319 yards, four touchdowns and one
interception as the Packers squeaked past the New Orleans Saints, 28-27.
The Green Bay offense amassed a season-high 421 yards of offense and 30 first
downs, the most in a game by the Packers since November 12, 1989. Green Bay
is 8-0 when Rodgers throws at least four touchdown passes.
Willis recorded a team-high 10 tackles, an interception and two passes
defensed in the 49ers' 34-0 victory over the New York Jets. Six of Willis' 10
tackles came within three yards of the line of scrimmage.
Zuerlein, a rookie out of Western Missouri State, set the Rams franchise
record with a 60-yard field goal in the team's 19-13 win over the Seattle
Seahawks. He also kicked field goals from 58, 48 and 24 yards out. He is a
perfect 12-for-12 in field goal attempts in his young NFL career.
