Three quarterback sacks, four total tackles in just 29 snaps – that's called domination.
And that's the kind of game defensive end Brandon Graham had on Sunday in the 48-22 win over the New York Giants. For his performance, Graham was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week, the second time he's earned that honor – joining Eagles Hall of Famers linebacker Seth Joyner (1992) and cornerback Eric Allen (1993) to win the award twice in the same season.
It is the eighth time the Eagles have been honored this season for Player of the Week honors, the most in team history. The previous honorees: Special teams: CB Zech McPhearson (Week 1 at Lions), PK Cameron Dicker (Week 5 at Cardinals); Defensive: CB Darius Slay (Week 2 vs. Vikings), DE Brandon Graham (Week 3 at Washington), LB Haason Reddick (Week 4 vs. Jaguars); Offensive: Hurts (Week 12 vs. Packers, Week 13 vs. Titans).
