Cowboys TE Blake Jarwin is the NFC Offensive Player of the Week

It is the third Offensive Player of the Week award for the Cowboys this year. Amari Cooper won it twice in Weeks 12 and 14.

In total, Dallas players have hauled in six Player of the Week awards in 2018. Leighton Vander Esch won the Defensive award in Week 10, and Brett Maher won it on Special Teams in Weeks 4 and 16.

As for Blake Jarwin, Sunday’s big day smashed some of his previous career highs. He’d had a seven-catch game before, but the 119 yards more than doubled his previous high of 56 yards.

The three touchdowns were Jarwin’s first and only scores so far in his young career.

Best of all, the big day may have established some new chemistry between Blake and Dak Prescott headed into the playoffs.

Congratulations to Blake Jarwin on being the NFC Offensive Player of the Week!
