Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard has been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week.

Pollard had a career-high 189 scrimmage yards (109 receiving, 80 rushing) and two touchdown receptions in the Cowboys’ 40-3 win at Minnesota in Week 11. He became the fourth player since 1990 with at least 75 rushing yards, 100 receiving yards and two touchdown receptions in a single game, joining Joey Galloway (November 12, 1995), Todd Gurley (December 24, 2017) and Pro Football Hall of Famer LaDainian Tomlinson (December 7, 2003).

This is the first-career Offensive Player of the Week award for Pollard and he joins Pro Football Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith (10-time winner) and Ezekiel Elliott as the only Cowboys running backs to win the award since 1990.

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week>

Kelce recorded six receptions for 115 yards and three touchdowns, including the game-winning 17-yard touchdown reception with 31 seconds remaining in the Chiefs’ Week 11 victory. He is the third tight end in the Super Bowl era with two games of three-or-more touchdown receptions in a single season, joining Todd Christensen (1983) and Pro Football Hall of Famer Kellen Winslow Sr. (1982).

Kelce has 33 career games with at least 100 receiving yards and surpassed Rob Gronkowski (32 games) for the most such games by a tight end in NFL history.

This is the second-career Offensive Player of the Week award for Kelce (Week 15, 2021) and first this season.
