For the first time in his career, Jeremy Maclin has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week. Maclin's six catches for 158 yards and two touchdowns were a huge reason for the Eagles' 31-21 victory over the Houston Texans last Sunday.

Maclin had two catches of over 50 yards (one for a touchdown) and he caught the important 8-yard toss from Mark Sanchez late in the fourth quarter for the game's final touchdown.

The award for Maclin comes one week after he set a career high with 187 receiving yards in the loss to the Arizona Cardinals, during which Maclin had 12 catches and two touchdowns. 

For the 26-year-old, 2014 has been quite the season. One year removed from the torn ACL that ended his 2013 season during Training Camp, Maclin has reemerged as a No. 1 receiver with 45 catches for 790 yards (fifth in the NFL) and eight touchdowns (fourth in the league) through eight games.
