It's a new season in the NFL and that means the Buckeye NFLer of the Week award is back. Each week we'll honor a former Buckeye as the top performer in the NFL from the school.

Week one's winner is Drew Carter of the Carolina Panthers. Carter had 3 catches for 19 yards but scored twice as the Panthers upset the St. Louis Rams at home 27-13. It was the first time in Carter's 4 year career that he scored multiple touchdowns in a game.

Honorable mention goes out to Mike Vrabel of the New England Patriots. Vrabel had 7 tackles (6 solo), 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble as the Patriots dismantled the N.Y. Jets at home, 38-14. We were ready to hand over this week's award to Vrabel until the Pats went all KGB on us.
