Packers WR Greg Jennings was named the NFC’s Offensive Player of the Week for Week 11, the NFL announced Wednesday. Jennings had seven catches for 152 yards (21.7 average) and a career-high three touchdowns in the Packers’ 31-3 win at Minnesota.
He became the third player in franchise history to record at least seven catches, 150 receiving yards and three touchdown receptions in the same game, joining Antonio Freeman (Dec. 20, 1998) and Javon Walker (Sept. 26, 2004).
Jennings had touchdown catches of 11, 46 and 22 yards. In his career, he has 37 touchdown receptions, and 15 have been at least 40 yards (40.5 percent). For his career, he gains 32.5 yards per TD catch, the second-best mark among active players with at least 20 touchdown receptions. He has at least six catches in five consecutive games and is the first Packer to accomplish that feat since Sterling Sharpe. Jennings is the seventh wide receiver in team history to be named Offensive Player of the Week.
Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers also was nominated for the NFC Player of the Week after completing 22-of-31 passes (71.0 percent) for 301 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions for a 141.3 passer rating.
