McCown headlines NFC's best for Week 14

New York, NY ( - Chicago Bears quarterback Josh McCown, Arizona Cardinals linebacker John Abraham and San Francisco 49ers kicker Phil Dawson were named the NFC's top players on offense, defense and special teams for Week 14 of the NFL season.

McCown completed 27-of-36 passes for 348 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions for a 141.9 passer rating in the Bears' 45-28 win over Dallas. He added a score on the ground in his fourth straight start in place of an injured Jay Cutler.

The 34-year-old McCown became the first Bears quarterback to pass for four touchdowns and rush for a score in a game since Jack Concannon in 1970.

Abraham recorded three sacks, a safety, one forced fumble and six tackles in the Cardinals' 30-10 win over St. Louis. With 11 sacks on the season, Abraham is one of only nine Cardinals to record at least 10 sacks in a season.

Dawson made all four field-goal attempts in the 49ers' 19-17 win over Seattle. Dating back to Week 5, Dawson has converted 20 consecutive field-goal attempts, the longest streak in franchise history.
