NEW YORK, Dec. 1 (UPI) -- The NFL gave its NFC offensive player of the week honor to Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler Wednesday for his four-score day against Philadelphia.

The NFC defensive player award went to New Orleans Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins and Atlanta Falcons kicker Matt Bryant was given the special teams award for their play during the season's 12th week.

Cutler earned the third weekly award of his career by completing 14-of-21 passes for 247 yards and accumulating a 146.2 passer rating.

Jenkins caught the league's attention for forcing and recovering a potential game-saving fumble in the Saints' win over Dallas. He finished with four tackles to win his first-ever weekly award.

Bryant kicked a 47-yard field goal with 9 seconds left to give Atlanta a 20-17 victory over Green Bay. It was his third game-winning boot of the season and 12th of his career.
