Michael Thomas Named NFC Offensive Player of the Week
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas had a historic performance in Sunday's win over the Los Angeles Rams.
In addition to making headlines for his cell phone celebration tribute to former Saints great Joe Horn, Thomas reeled in a dozen catches for a franchise record 211 yards and a touchdown.
Halfway through the season, Thomas has 70 receptions for 880 yards and 5 scores.
Thomas is the 5th member of the Saints to earn an NFC honor this year.
Quarterback Drew Brees has earned the same honor as Thomas twice this year, while linebacker DeMario Davis and cornerback P.J. Williams have earned NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors, and kicker Will Lutz took home the NFC Special Teams Player of the Month award for September.
