TAMPA, Fla. -- In the Matt Bryant situation, everything is relative. But there's a small positive today.

The Bucs just told us that Bryant has been named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week. Bryant kicked three field goals, including the game winner, against Green Bay on Sunday. That came a day after he buried his infant son, Matthew Tryson.

Linebacker Derrick Brooks was selected as the NFC Defensive Player of the week after recording his 25th career interception and forcing a fumble against the Packers.
