OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Terrell Owens / WR / Cincinnati Bengals
The Bengals fell to 2-2 after losing to the Browns, but Terrell Owens shook off a slow start to the season, making 10 catches for 222 yards vs. the in-state rivals. Cincinnati was outscored 13-10 after his 78-yard touchdown tied the game at 10 in the second quarter. "We're frustrated," Owens said after the loss. "I don't think personally, I'm frustrated. From the standpoint of us knowing we have offensive weapons and we're not moving the ball like we're capable of moving it, that's where the frustration comes in." Owens passed Isaac Bruce and moved into second place on the league's career receiving yards list with 15,325. He also passed Bruce for fifth place on the receptions list with 1,030.
DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Shaun Phillips / LB / San Diego Chargers
The Chargers responded from their Week Three loss to the Seahawks by pummeling the Cardinals 41-10 and holding Arizona to 124 total yards in the process, even with LBs Shawne Merriman and Larry English inactive because of injuries. San Diego didn't need them. Fellow OLB Shaun Phillips was all over the field, recording a career-high four sacks and two passes defended. At the end of the first half, Phillips sacked Cardinals QB Derek Anderson on a 2nd-and-10. On the next play, he caught the last pass Anderson threw on Sunday, taking an interception 31 yards to the house and giving the Chargers a 28-7 lead. Anderson was benched after that. The Chargers returned to .500 and face the Raiders and Rams in their next two games.
SPECIAL-TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Josh Scobee / PK / Jacksonville Jaguars
When QB Peyton Manning led the Colts downfield for a game-tying touchdown with 48 seconds left, the probability was high that Manning would lead Indy to victory in overtime, but Josh Scobee didn't let it get that far. Set up by a 22-yard pass from QB David Garrard to WR Tiquan Underwood, Scobee lined up for a 59-yard field goal. The seventh-year veteran knocked it through the uprights with room to spare, giving the Jags a well-needed upset victory over a division foe following back-to-back 25-point losses. Scobee's kick was the longest in franchise history and ignited quite a celebration on the field. "I don't know what I was thinking," Scobee told reporters. "I think I blacked out for about 10 seconds. It was incredible."
