New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey, New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul and Philadelphia Eagles punter Donnie Jones were named the NFC's top players for Week 11 of the NFL season.

Rainey ran for 163 yards and scored three touchdowns (two rushing, one receiving) in the Buccaneers' 41-28 win over the Falcons. He is the first Buccaneer player in franchise history to record two rushing touchdowns and one receiving touchdown in the same game.

In his second season from Western Kentucky, this is Rainey's first career Player of the Week Award.

Pierre-Paul recorded an interception-return for a touchdown while notching three tackles in the Giants' 27-13 victory over the Packers.

This is Pierre-Paul's third career Player of the Week Award. He was previously honored twice in 2011 (Weeks 14 and 16).

Jones punted six times for an average of 50.7 yards per punt in the Eagles' 24-16 home win against the Redskins. He placed four of his six punts inside the 20-yard line.

This is Jones' first career Player of the Week Award.
