Following a 10 catch, 199 yard and one touchdown performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, the NFL has named New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for week two of the 2012 season.
“You can’t say enough about him,” Head Coach Tom Coughlin said of Nicks after the game. “He goes out there with one day of practice and made an awful lot of plays.”
Nicks also received the game ball from Coughlin – a testament to his performance on a bad foot that was also stepped on during the game.
Along with Victor Cruz, the duo set an NFL record and became the first pair of wide receivers (teammates) to ever catch at least 10 passes for 175 yards respectively.
#88 becomes the first Giants WR to win the award since Plaxico Burress in week four of the 2005 season.
It is not known whether or not Aqib Talib will personally deliver the award to Nicks.
