New York, NY (Sports Network) - Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman and San Francisco 49ers punter Andy Lee were recognized as the NFC's top Week 7 performers.
Peterson rushed for 153 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries during Minnesota's 21-14 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday to take home the offensive award. It was his ninth career game with over 150 yards rushing.
Tillman forced two fumbles and recorded seven tackles as the Bears downed the Detroit Lions, 13-7, on Monday night. He became the first member of the Bears to win the defensive award in consecutive games, as he earned the honor in Week 5 prior to Chicago's bye week.
Lee took home the special teams award by placing four of his five punts inside the Seattle Seahawks' 20-yard line. He averaged 45.6 yards per punt, including a season-long 66-yard kick, in the 13-6 win.
