The Monday Morning Collector is back for the seventh week of the NFL season. If we had to pick a game of the week, it would be the New York Giants against the Washington Redskins. It wasn’t the prettiest game played, but it was definitely exciting.

Now on to the awards.

Veteran of the Week
Matt Schaub, Houston Texans: Houston has come on as one of the best teams in the league. The Texans are 6-1 and have outscored opponents by 88 points this year. A big part of that success is Matt Schaub, the Texans quarterback. He’s been consistent week in and week out. On Sunday, Schaub finished 23-for-37 for 256 yards and two touchdowns in a 43-13 win over the Baltimore Ravens.

Rookie of the Week
Alfred Morris, Washington Redskins: Robert Griffin III isn’t the only rookie to watch on the Redskins. The sixth-round draft pick ran for 120 yards on 22 carries, averaging 5.5 yards a touch in a tough loss against the New York Giants on Sunday. Morris enters today second in the league in rushing, just one yard behind Houston’s Arian Foster.

Breakout Performance of the Week
Josh Freeman, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: The Bucs have been some tough-luck losers this year. They are 2-4, but have played better than their record shows. Freeman had a huge game on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. He completed 24-of-42 passes for 420 yards and three touchdowns. Unfortunately for Bucs fans, TB still lost to the Saints 35-28.
