Five time Ulster Championship winning captain, Michael Murphy, was at his brilliant best for Donegal against Kerry.
The Glenswilly clubman converted a last gasp free to secure a draw for Donegal on an afternoon in which Murphy registered 1-7.
Colm Boyle was a key figure as Mayo claimed a vital victory over Meath at Croke Park.
The ever industrious Boyle delivered a typically wholehearted display for James Horan's team, and drove forward to land an inspirational second half point.
Mattie Donnelly was influential as Tyrone overcame a shaky start to defeat Cork at Croke Park.
Donnelly contributed three points and his switch into a more attacking position in the second half was pivotal.
Players of the Week are decided based on votes cast by followers of the Official GAA Instagram page.
