Cat Crave’s NFC Honors for Week 6

Week 6 saw an all NFC South showdown as the Carolina Panthers took on the Atlanta Falcons and the Tampa Buccaneers competed against the New Orleans Saints. Week 6 also saw a number of impressive individual performances from NFC South players. To see who came away with this week’s Cat Crave awards, continue to read.

NFC South Offensive Player of the Week: Josh Freeman

Freeman rebounded from a couple of underwhelming games and restarted his ascent as one of the NFL’s most exciting young quarterbacks. The Tampa Bay signal caller was instrumental in the Bucs 26-20 victory over NFC South foe, the New Orleans Saints in Week 6. Freeman’s passing percentage was less than impressive as he only completed 23 passes out of 41 attempts (56%) but he racked up a total of 303 yards through the air. Freeman’s hook-ups with receivers Arrelious Benn and Preston Parker for touchdowns helped Tampa Bay claim a victory and a stake of NFC South dominance.


NFC South Defensive Player of the Week: Thomas DeCoud

DeCoud is a very solid safety and his play on Sunday re-affirmed that notion. DeCoud was in on 7 tackles, 6 of which were solo. DeCoud also had one pass defended as well as a reception which he returned for 49 yards before being brought down. DeCoud’s defensive efforts helped the Falcons capture a 31-17 victory over NFC South rivals, the Carolina Panthers

NFC South Special Teams Player of the Week: Connor Barth

Connor Barth has claimed his second Cat Crave NFC South Special Teams play of the week award. Barth had as much of a hand in Tampa’s win against the Saints as Josh Freeman did. Barth went four for five on field goal attempts (80%) connecting on attempts from 48, 42, 42, and 38 yards respectively. Barth also notched two PATs giving himself a total of 14 points in Sunday’s victory.
