Apparently, the NFL thought this week’s NFC offensive player of the week was an “easy” decision.

Eddie Lacy won the award, after the Packers rookie running back ran for 141 yards and the game-winning touchdown in their dramatic comeback over the Cowboys.

Lacy now has 1,028 yards on the season, leaving him 77 yards short of the Packers rookie rushing record.

That’s impressive stuff, even though Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said the choice to take Le’Veon Bell in the second round instead was “an easy one.”

Lacy will get a chance to make his case in person when the Steelers and Packers meet this week.
