Brady, Westbrook lead weekly NFL honorees

NEW YORK, Sept. 26 (UPI) -- Tom Brady and Brian Westbrook Wednesday were among those earning Player of the Week honors in the NFL.

Brady was the top AFC player after equaling his career-high with four touchdown passes in a 38-7 rout of Buffalo.


He was joined in the AFC by Tennessee Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck (defense) and Baltimore kick returner Yamon Figurs (special teams).

Bulluck equaled a franchise record with three interceptions as the Titans beat New Orleans, 31-14, and Figurs scored on a 75-yard punt return for his first career touchdown as the Ravens beat Arizona, 26-23.

Westbrook scored three touchdowns -- one receiving, two rushing -- and was the seventh player since the 1970 merger with more than 110 rushing and receiving yards in the same game as Philadelphia routed Detroit, 56-21.

The six-year veteran from Villanova totaled a career-high with his 221 yards from scrimmage.

Also earning NFC honors were Dallas cornerback Anthony Henry (defense) and Seattle linebacker Lance Laury (special teams).
