Running back Brian Westbrook has been named the NFC offensive player of the week for his performance Thursday night during the Eagles' 48-20 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

Westbrook ran 22 times for 110 yards and caught three passes for 20 yards against Arizona. He also scored four touchdowns, two each rushing and receiving. That's the kind of performance the Eagles will need from Westbrook again Sunday when the Eagles travel to the Meadowlands for a must-win game against the 11-1 New York Giants.

The Eagles are hopeful that Westbrook's big game is a sign of things to come for both him and the offense. In his previous four games before Arizona, Westbrook had run 61 times for just 186 yards and caught 14 passes for 74 yards. He had also gone four games without scoring a touchdown.

This is Westbrook's second offensive player of the week award. He also won a special teams player of the week award for his game-winning punt return against the Giants in 2003.
