Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford's Monday night performance against the visiting New Orleans Saints earned him the NFC Offensive Player of the Week award from the NFL. Bradford passed for 346 yards and three touchdowns.

It's the first time Bradford has received the award, and the first time for a Vikings quarterback since Brett Favre earned it in 2009.

Bradford had a career-high quarterback rating of 143.0 on Monday night.

The Vikings face the Steelers Sunday afternoon in Pittsburgh.
