The winners will be announced Friday on NFL Total Access on NFL Network and on NFL.com.

Brees, who was Named NFC Offensive Player of the Week, completed 29 of 45 passes (64.4 percent) for 370 yards with four touchdowns and one interception for a 110.4 passer rating in New Orleans’ win over San Diego.

    Drew Brees has set more records in his career with the New Orleans Sanits that are monumental for any Quarterback! He deserves all the accolades he has received and more for all he has accomplished as the Quarterback of the New Orleans Saints!
