Rodgers highlights NFC weekly winners

New York, NY (Sports Network) - Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle and Detroit Lions kicker Jason Hanson were recognized as the NFC's top Week 6 performers.

Rodgers took home offensive honors after he completed 24-of-37 passes for 338 yards and six touchdowns in the Packers' 42-24 win at Houston over a previously undefeated Texans club.

Rolle, the first Giants safety to earn weekly defensive notice since Percy Ellsworth in 1998, had two interceptions and six tackles for a New York defense that limited San Francisco to three points.

Special-teams honors went to Hanson, who connected on four field goals, including a game-winning 45-yarder in overtime, as the Lions rallied for a 26-23 win at Philadelphia. He had forced the extra session by kicking a 19- yarder with three seconds left in regulation.
