Josh McCown is on a roll.

As Chicago -- and the sports world -- debates whether or not McCown should remain as the Bears' starter even when Jay Cutler is 100 percent healthy, the veteran quarterback took home the NFC offensive player of the week Wednesday.

McCown accounted for five touchdowns against the Cowboys Monday night, throwing for four scores and helicopter-ing into the endzone (a la John Elway) for a rushing touchdown as the Bears cruised to a much-needed victory.

On the season, the 34-year-old gunslinger has thrown for 13 touchdowns compared to just one interception while completing 66.8 percent of his passes and carrying a 109.8 passer rating, which would go down as the highest single-season rating in Bears history if season ended today.
