NEW YORK, Nov. 23 (UPI) -- Quarterback Kurt Warner of the Arizona Cardinals was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week on Wednesday.

In the Cardinals' 38-28 victory over his former team, the St. Louis Rams, Warner was 27-of-39 passing for 285 yards and three touchdowns in his best outing in nearly three years, helping Arizona break a three-game losing streak.

Also honored in the NFC were cornerback Nathan Vasher (defense) of Chicago and David Tyree of the New York Giants (special teams).

Vasher recorded two interceptions, four tackles, and one forced fumble in the Bears' 13-3 win over the Carolina Panthers. Vasher also earned special teams honors for his 108-yard return of a missed field goal last week against San Francisco, the longest play in NFL history.

Tyree made a key punt block in the second quarter of the Giants' 27-17 victory against Philadelphia. It was the Giants' first punt block since Dec. 28, 2003, and was his second Player of the Week award.
