Matthew Stafford has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in his Los Angeles Rams debut.

Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford made his Los Angeles debut on Sunday night and after his three-touchdown performance, he's been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week.

Stafford was efficient in the passing game, completing 20 of 26 attempts for 321 yards and three scores in the Rams' 34-14 win over the Bears.

Stafford set two new career-highs: a passer rating of 156.1 and a 12.3 yards per attempt.
