NFL Week 16 Players of the Week: Aaron Rodgers Shakes Off the Cobwebs and Shines

The NFL has named it’s AFC and NFC offensive and defensive players of the week for week 15 of the 2010 football season. Aaron Rodgers, quarterback of the Green Bay Packers and Antoine Winfield, cornerback for the Minnesota Vikings have earned the NFC honors. In the AFC, it was Kansas City Chiefs’ wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, and Baltimore Raves’ safety Ed Reed.

Aaron Rodgers’ performance comes one week after getting his clock cleaned and sitting a game due to not passing a concussion test. It is his second player of the week award in 2010 and second in the past month. We had a few entrants pick him in our “Jagermeister Player of the Week” contest, but no one matched him up with Ed Reed or Antoine Winfield. We had quite a few entries of Aaron Rodgers with fellow teammate Clay Matthews… maybe next week as the Packers are still fighting for that playoff spot.

A few other entrants selected Ed Reed as the defensive player of the week, but again, no matches with Bowe or Rodgers. Nobody picked Antoine Winfield or Dwayne Bowe at all this week.

Since no one could match up a pair of correct names, the cooler goes back in the closet for another week. You only have one more chance to win for this football season.
