Josh McCown named NFC Offensive player of the week

Josh McCown was named the NFC Offensive player of the week after torching the Dallas Cowboys in Week 14.

Filling in for Jay Cutler, the 34-year-old McCown has been nothing short of impressive even if Monday’s heroics came against the worst defensive unit in the NFL.

McCown finished Monday’s game 27-of-36 for 348 yards with four passing touchdowns and another one on the ground.

Even with McCown’s strong play the Bears coaching staff says Cutler will start when healthy.
