NEW YORK, Oct. 22 (UPI) -- St. Louis Rams running back Stephen Jackson Wednesday was named NFC offensive player of the week.
The former Oregon State product, in his fifth NFL season, erupted for 160 yards on 25 carries with three touchdowns, leading the Rams' 34-14 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
He added two receptions for 16 yards, giving him 176 yards from scrimmage.
It is his second career POW honor.
Jackson was joined in the NFC by safeties Aaron Rouse (defense) of Green Bay and Zackary Bowman (special teams).
Rouse, in his second year from Virginia Tech, made seven tackles and scored on a 99-yard fourth quarter interception return in the Packers' 34-7 rout of the Indianapolis Colts.
Bowman, a rookie safety out of Nebraska, recovered a fumble in the end zone for his first career touchdown in the Bears' 48-41 victory against the Minnesota Vikings.
Bowman had been elevated from the Bears' practice squad days earlier.
