Default Re: Really, Peter King?

Hey... you can't have everything. King gave out just seven "blank"-of-the-Week" honors to folks. Three of seven were Texans. And whoda thunk that last one...?

Quote:
Offensive Players of the Week
Houston RB Arian Foster. With the Bengals knowing Foster was going to get the ball early and often and late, Foster morphed from a classic Denver-style, one-cut-and-get-upfield back to a stretch-the-line-and-get-upfield-all-day back against Cincinnati. In his first playoff game ever, Foster rushed 24 times for 153 yards and two touchdowns.

Defensive Player of the Week
Houston DE J.J. Watt. A 6-foot-5, 290-pound defensive end doesn't make the kind of catch Watt made at the end of the first half Saturday. He somehow Velcroed a line drive from Andy Dalton and ran it in 29 yards for the deciding touchdown late in the second quarter. Watt also had a sack of Dalton, and he was part of an excellent run defense that held Bengal back Cedric Benson to seven carries for 14 yards.

Special Teams Player of the Week
Houston P Matt Turk. In a game that looked for 30 minutes like it'd be a field-position game, Turk booted five punts for a 50.2-yard average (a 42.2-yard net). Turk is 43. This is his 16th NFL season. He's seen it all, and now he's seen a playoff victory in Houston.
Don't be so greedy
