Week 14's Buckeye NFLer of the Week is Matt Wilhelm of the San Diego Chargers. Matt chipped in with 10 tackles (7 solo) and also picked off Vince Young in the 2nd half as the Chargers came back from being down 14 points in the 4th quarter to beat the Tennessee Titans 23-17 in OT.

This is the 2nd time this season Wilhelm was given the 11W Buckeye NFLer of the Week. 2007 has become a breakout year for the 5th year pro. After missing 2 games to injury, Matt is 2nd on the Chargers in tackles. He has also registered 2 interceptions so far this year.

Anthony Gonzalez of the Indianapolis Colts was a close runner-up. Gonzo had 6 catches for 134 yards, including TD catches of 57 and 44 yards as the Colts routed the Baltimore Ravens 44-20.

The importance of the Chargers' victory in the standings gave Wilhelm's Week 14 effort the edge.
