Brian Westbrook entered Monday night with nine rushing yards. He left with 136 more, his first touchdown with the 49ers and a nomination for FedEx’s Ground Player of the Week.
He’s amongst tough competition, but Westbrook’s performance deserves serious recognition. Despite having a limited role for the first 10 games of the season, Westbrook kept his head in the game and was ready when called upon.
His 136 yards were his most in a single game since Oct. 26, 2008 vs. Atlanta when he rushed 22 times for 167 yards and scored two touchdowns.
