Vote For The SB Nation NY Player Of The Week

It's Monday morning, which means it's time to vote for the SB Nation New York Player of the Week. Last week, Matt Moulson was the winner, thanks to his goal-scoring explosion. This week, the New York Jets won a laugher over the Chiefs, the New York Giants beat the Cowboys in a thriller, the New York Rangers went 2-1-1, the New York Islanders broke even, at 1-1-1, and the New Jersey Devils went 2-1. Here are the new nominees. Vote now!

↵

Shonn Greene: The Jets' signature ground and pound is beginning to take shape once again, with Greene gaining a season-high 129 rushing yards in the win over Kansas City. He scored another touchdown, making that four in two weeks, averaged 5.4 yards per carry, caught three passes for 58 yards and racked up a career-high 187 total yards.

↵

Mark Sanchez: Ok, the Chiefs barely resembled an NFL team on Sunday, but Sanchez helped make their defense look like a semi-pro team, throwing two touchdown passes against them and rushing for two more. He went 13-for-21 (61.9 percent), threw for 181 yards, didn't toss an interception (though he did fumble during garbage time) and finished with a 121.3 passer rating.

↵

Jason Pierre-Paul: What can you say about Pierre-Paul's performance on Sunday night? He opened the scoring with a safety and sealed the game with a blocked field goal. In between, he forced a fumble that led to a field goal, sacked Tony Romo, made tackles behind the line of scrimmage, made open-field tackles and was basically a one-man wrecking crew. He finished with eight tackles and two sacks.

↵

Eli Manning: While Brandon Jacobs had his best game of the year and Hakeem Nicks came up big, it was Mr. Clutch who did it again. Manning not only had to lead one come-from-behind fourth-quarter drive but he had to do it twice. Was there any doubt that he would do it? For the game, Manning threw for exactly 400 yards, going 27-for-47, and tossed a pair of touchdown passes (with one interception), and had a 90.7 passer rating.

↵

David Clarkson: The Devils' right winger netted a pair of goals in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Maple Leafs, with the second one being the game-winner in overtime (has anybody started calling those "skate-off goals" yet?). Clarkson also picked up an assist in the 5-4 shootout victory over the Senators on Thursday, and he added five hits in the three games played this week and went a plus-2.

↵

Ryan Callahan: Any number of Rangers could have been chosen this time around, but we'll go with the heart and soul of the team. Callahan's stats aren't eye-popping, with two goals (one shorthanded) and one assist, but he does so much more on the ice to help his team win. He kills penalties, he plays on the power play and he gets his nose dirty. Besides the offensive numbers, he had a whopping 23 hits in the four games and blocked six shots.

↵

David Ullstrom: The Islanders' 22-year-old Swedish rookie notched his first NHL goal in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Lightning and then added his second in Saturday's loss to the Penguins. For the week, he went a plus-2 with four hits and two blocked shots besides netting the pair of goals.
