It's a good week to be Brandon Marshal, the shower of love continues to rain over the big powerful Jets wide receiver.

Brandon Marshall has been named the NFL's offensive player of the week.  He finished with 12 catches on 13 targets for 131 yards and a touchdown. He made several big plays to extend drives, and had huge catches on both scoring drives to send the game into OT.

Marshall has been fantastic for the Jets all year, but his value was highlighted with the game tying touchdown catch where he used his pure physical talent to overwhelm his defender.

Marshall became the first receiver in history to go over 1,000 yards in a single season with 4 different teams. It speaks for his obvious talent, that he has been able to do this while working with several different QB's.

Congratulations to Marshall, on a much deserved award.
