     Fresh off a game where Justin Jefferson had a career-high 193 yards receiving in a 33-30 overtime victory over the Buffalo Bills, the NFL is now honoring the Vikings’ All-Pro receiver. Jefferson was named the NFC’s Offensive Player of the Week on Wednesday.

     Jefferson’s career game included 10 receptions, a touchdown, and the NFL’s possible catch of the year (28.8 percent catch probability rate). In the game against Buffalo he recorded his 20th career 100-plus yard receiving game and seventh with at least 150 yards, both of which are a new NFL record for a wide receiver within his first three seasons.

     After earning the weekly award, Jefferson joined a handful of Vikings to be honored by the NFL this season. Greg Joseph (Week 4 Special Teams), Ryan Wright (Week 6 Special Teams), and Za’Darius Smith (Week 8 Defense, October NFC Defensive Player of the Month) are the other Vikings to be honored by the NFL this season.

     The Vikings (8-1) will welcome the Dallas Cowboys (6-3) to U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday, Nov. 20 with kickoff set for 3:25 p.m.
