Smith's record-setting performance highlights NFC weekly winners

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith, New York Giants safety Stevie Brown and Green Bay Packers cornerback Davon House were recognized as the NFC's top Week 8 performers.

Smith set an NFL record for most passes in a game without more than one incompletion or interception by completing 18-of-19 passes for 232 yards and three touchdowns in a 24-3 victory over the Arizona Cardinals to take home the offensive award.

His 94.7 completion percentage is also the highest single-game mark in NFL history with a minimum of 15 attempts.

Brown earned defensive honors with two interceptions, a fumble recovery and six tackles during a 29-24 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. He now has five interceptions on the season and picks in four of his last six games.

House blocked a punt that resulted in a touchdown as the Packers downed the Jacksonville Jaguars, 24-15, to take home the special teams award. He is the first Packer to block a punt since Sept. 29, 2003.
