Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, 49ers LB Patrick Willis and Rams PK Greg Zuerlein were named the NFC’s Players of the Week for Week Four.

In Green Bay’s win over the Saints, Rodgers completed 31-of-41 passes for 319 yards, tour touchdowns and one interception, good for a 119.9 passer rating.

Willis had 10 tackles, two passes defensed and one interception in the 49ers’ 34-0 shutout over the Jets.

Zuerlein became the first kicker in NFL history to hit field goals from at least 50 and 60 yards out in the same game. He converted all four of his field-goal attempts, including field goals from 58 and 60 yards out.
