NFL Week 1: AFC and NFC Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week

The NFL Players of the Week for week 1, Kickoff weekend, have been announced and are shown below… and to the left. As in most cases during the first week of the season, not a single member entering our “Jagermeister Player of the Week” contest guessed a single one of the players correctly. That’s right, none of the four players were even guessed once, by anyone. We typically see a dark horse making an impression right out of the gate each year.

The Week 1 NFL Players of the Week are:

Offense: Matt Forte – Running Back – Chicago Bears
Defense: Adrian Wilson – Safety – Arizona Cardinals

Offense: Arian Foster – Running Back – Houston Texans
Defense: Daryl Smith – Linebacker – Jacksonville Jaguars

Peyton Manning and Julius Peppers were the most guessed players on either side of the ball. Manning had the numbers to be crowned, he just didn’t win the game. Julius Peppers had a half-decent game as well. He only registered one tackle, but it was a sack and he also had a forced fumble.
