              === Pair of rookies highlight NFC weekly winners ===
 
 New  York,  NY (Sports Network)  - Seattle Seahawks rookie quarterback Russell
 Wilson and St. Louis' greenhorn kicker Greg Zuerlein made up two-thirds of the
 NFC's top Week 13 performers.
 
 Wilson  earned  the offensive  award after completing  23-of-37 passes for 293
 yards  and rushing  for  71 yards,  the  most by  a  quarterback in  franchise
 history,  in Seattle's 23-17 overtime win at Chicago. Wilson threw a touchdown
 pass  to Golden  Tate with 24 seconds  remaining in the fourth quarter to give
 the  Seahawks  a 17-14, and after  the Bears' Robbie Gould forced overtime, he
 hit Sidney Rice for the game-winning score.
 
 The  special teams award  went to Zuerlein, who kicked a 53-yard field goal at
 the  end of regulation and drilled a 54-yarder in overtime as the Rams stunned
 San Francisco, 16-13. Zuerlein has made seven field goals of at least 50 yards
 this  season, one  shy of  the league's  single-season record  held by  Morten
 Andersen (1995) and Jason Hanson (2008).
 
 Atlanta  Falcons  safety William  Moore  garnered  the defensive  honor  after
 compiling  a game-high  11 tackles and two interceptions in the Falcons' 23-13
 victory over New Orleans.
