After his incredible performance, that included his first career touchdown,  Minnesota Vikings LB Eric Kendricks has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week.

In the 25-16 win over the Tennesse Titans, Kendricks had seven tackles, including one tackle for a loss, he becomes the eighth different Viking to earn NFC Player of the Week honors under head coach Mike Zimmer.

Kendricks and the Vikings play their first regular-season game at the new U.S. Bank Stadium, Sunday night versus the Green Bay Packers.
