Just call Week 7's masterful performance another day at the office for A.J. Brown. Heck, that's what we do. We have determined that the only way for the Philadelphia Eagles star wide receiver to be stopped is for Philly's offensive play callers to do that thing they do.
You know the one... Occasionally, rather than get the ball into the hands of their best players, guys who have proven time and time again that they can't be stopped, the Birds' coaches decide instead to be creative and/or tricky.
It rarely works, but they keep doing it. That's why you hear boos from the home crowd when the decision is to toss one down the field in double coverage to a Quez Watkins instead of getting the ball to A.J., DeVonta Smith, or Dallas Goedert on third and long.
Anyway... We digress... again... That isn't why we're here. At least not this time. We're here because A.J. Brown earned a nice tip of the cap.
A.J. Brown earns NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors following another brilliant performance.
Ten receptions... That's a season high... 137 yards receiving... Another touchdown reception, one that put Philly back up on the scoreboard after the Miami Dolphins scored a defensive TD to tie the game. Those were the results of A.J. Brown's effort on Sunday Night Football.
Some individual honor came A.J.'s way as a result.
Frankly, we aren't surprised. Had he not been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week, we would have taken it upon ourselves to launch an investigation. Believe it or not, this is the first time he has been given this honor in his career.
A.J. was again a prime-time type of talent. It's fitting that he saved a top-tier performance for a prime-time game. He becomes the third player in NFL history to stack 125 yards receiving or more in five consecutive games. Pat Studstill and Calvin Johnson are the other two. Here's our prediction. He takes the record for himself in Week 8.
