With Rice's stellar performance against the Lions this past Sunday, with 201 receiving yards. Rice earned the NFC Offensive Player of the Week.He is the first Viking receiver to earn the award since Randy Moss did way back in 2001. He was 10 yards shy of the Vikings single game receiving record. He and Favre have clicked an both rely heavily on each other. Currently Rice is in the top 5 in catches and receiving yards.It looks like those off season workout with Cris Carter and Larry Fitzgerald are pay off.
