DeSean Jackson is the man.

He's also the award winner of the NFC offensive player of the week. Jackson put up good numbers in Eagles' Week 5 victory over the New York Giants, finishing with 7 receptions for 132 yards and 1 TD.

The speedy Eagles receiver is having a great year. Through five games, DeSean has three with at least seven catches, 100 yards and one touchdown. This is also the first time DJacc has ever had three games with seven-plus catches in the same season.

Ranked 4th overall in yards (525) and 8th overall in yards from scrimmage, it's clear DeSean has been a key factor for the Eagles' success.

Plus, an interesting fact here from Randall Liu, part of NFL Communications:

Here's how DeSean responded to the news about his award:
