Stefon Diggs' merciless performance against the Green Bay Packers under the lights of U.S. Bank Stadium has earned him the NFC Offensive Player of the Week award.

Diggs torched the Packers with 9 catches for 182 yards and a touchdown. His 25-yard touchdown grab was just his third-longest reception of the night. He also hauled in catches for 44 and 46 yards.

It was the most yards a Vikings receiver has had against the Packers since Randy Moss burst onto the scene as a rookie in 1998 with 190 yards on Monday Night Football.

Through two weeks Diggs leads the NFL with 285 receiving yards.
