Michael Vick was named NFC offensive player of the week for the second week in a row for his record-setting performance Monday night in the Eagles' 59-28 shellacking of the Redskins.

Vick became with first quarterback to win back-to-back player of the week honors since Randall Cunningham did so with the Vikings in 1998. He completed 20 of 28 passes for 333 yards and four touchdowns. Vick also ran eight times for 80 yards and two scores. He became the first player in NFL history with more than 300 yards passing, 50 yards rushing, four passing touchdowns and two rushing touchdowns in a game.

The NFL Hall of Fame requested Vick's jersey from the game and the Eagles will send it as soon as possible, according to a team spokesman.

Vick, the NFL leader in passing, has yet to throw an interception in 153 pass attempts this season.
