Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian
Peterson, Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman and San Francisco 49ers
punter Andy Lee were recognized as the NFC's top Week 7 performers.
Peterson rushed for 153 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries during Minnesota's
21-14 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday to take home the offensive
award. It was his ninth career game with over 150 yards rushing.
Tillman forced two fumbles and recorded seven tackles as the Bears
downed the Detroit Lions, 13-7, on Monday night. He became the first member of
the Bears to win the defensive award in consecutive games, as he earned the
honor in Week 5 prior to Chicago's bye week.
Lee took home the special teams award by placing four of his five punts inside
the Seattle Seahawks' 20-yard line. He averaged 45.6 yards per punt, including
a season-long 66-yard kick, in the 13-6 win.
