Giants QB Eli Manning, Buccaneers CB Ronde Barber and Cowboys PK Dan Bailey were named NFC Players of the Week for their performances in Week Three.

Manning threw for 254 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's 29-16 win over the rival Eagles. It's the second time in his career that he has been named Player of the Week.

Barber was all over the field in Sunday's win against the Falcons, recording four tackles, three passes defensed, an interception and a fumble recovery. It's the eighth time Barber has been named Player of the Week.

Bailey made all six of his field-goal attempts in Monday night's win against the Redskins, including the game-winning 40-yarder. His six field goals tied the rookie record for field goals in one game with Garo Yepremian and Jeff Reed.
