New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week, the NFL announced Wednesday.

Brees completed 19 of 27 passes for 257 yards, five touchdowns and earned a passer rating of 140.0 in Sunday's 35-32 road win against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

It was Brees' ninth career five-touchdown game, tied for first in NFL record books with Peyton Manning.
