Obvious choice.

NFL: Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has officially been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his Week 7 performance against the Washington Redskins.

Wentz completed 68% of his passes on Monday Night Football for 268 yards (10.7 average), four touchdowns, one interception, and a 126.3 passer rating. Wentz also ran the ball eight times for 63 yards.

This marks the second time Wentz has won this award in his career. He was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week in Week 3 of the 2016 season. Wentz now joins Cam Newton and Russell Wilson as the only quarterbacks to win NFC Offensive Player of Week in each of their first two seasons over the past 25 years.

Wentz was simply unreal in the Eagles’ win over Washington. He’s such a special talent. The second-year quarterback has a legitimate case to be the NFL MVP so far this year.
