New York, NY (Sports Network) - San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith, New York Giants safety Stevie Brown and Green Bay Packers cornerback Davon House were recognized as the NFC's top Week 8 performers.

Smith set an NFL record for most passes in a game without more than one incompletion or interception by completing 18-of-19 passes for 232 yards and three touchdowns in a 24-3 victory over the Arizona Cardinals to take home the offensive award.

His 94.7 completion percentage is also the highest single-game mark in NFL history with a minimum of 15 attempts.

Brown earned defensive honors with two interceptions, a fumble recovery and six tackles during a 29-24 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. He now has five interceptions on the season and picks in four of his last six games.

House blocked a punt that resulted in a touchdown as the Packers downed the Jacksonville Jaguars, 24-15, to take home the special teams award. He is the first Packer to block a punt since Sept. 29, 2003.
