The two quarterbacks had splendid outings and led their teams to victories and are now racking up the accolades.
Goff and Herbert highlighted the Week 13 NFL Players of the Week, as released by the league Wednesday morning.
Goff's 11-yard touchdown strike to Amon-Ra St. Brown with no time left gave his Detroit Lions their first win of the season, as they downed the Minnesota Vikings, 29-27. While Goff came up big in the clutch, he turned in an all-around excellent performance and was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week. He completed 25 of 41 passes (61%) for 296 yards and three touchdowns.
Herbert hauled in a two-point conversion pass in the Los Angeles Chargers' 41-22 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, but it was of course the brilliance in his arm that led him to AFC Offensive Player of the Week. Herbert was stellar to the tune of 317 yards passing and three touchdowns with 26 completions in 35 attempts (74.3%) for a 118.4 rating.
Pittsburgh Steelers game wrecker T.J. Watt continued his assault on opposing offenses in his team's 20-19 victory over the rival Baltimore Ravens. Watt, the AFC Defensive Player of the Week, tallied six tackles, 3.5 sacks, three tackles for a loss and a forced fumble in the pivotal win.
Miami Dolphins punter Michael Palardy was recognized as AFC Special Teams Player of the Week. In the Miami Dolphins' 20-9 win over the New York Giants, Palardy had six punts, with three landing inside the 20-yard line, a long of 65 yards and an impressive average of 48.3 yards per punt.
