Bucs RB/FB Mike Alstott ignited Tampa Bay's offense past the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, 41-14. The A-Train rushed 28 times for 129 yards and scored three of Tampa Bay's five offensive touchdowns. Alstott was recognized for his efforts at One Buccaneer Place on Wednesday and received the Miller Lite Player of the Week Award for Week 7.

"A lot of players had awesome weeks last week," said Alstott. "For myself to be selected player of the week this week, it's really a great honor."

But the A-Train was quick to recognize the rest of Tampa Bay's offensive unit for helping him have success against Minnesota.

"This ball should go to the offensive line and the rest of the guys on that side of the ball," said Alstott. "I'd like to thank those guys, Miller Lite and the NFL."
