Jones Player Of The Week Again


After another masterful performance against the Arizona Cardinals, Donnie Jones has once again been named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week. Also winning the award for his performance against the Washington Redskins, Jones becomes the first Eagle to take home Player of the Week honors in two consecutive games since Michael Vick in 2010.

Against the Cardinals, Jones pinned seven punts inside the 20-yard line, which was both a personal best for the 10-year veteran and a new team record. Those seven punts inside the 20 tied for the third-highest total in the NFL since that became an official stat in 1976. He also booted a 69-yard punt during the game, his second-longest this season and third-longest of his career.

Jones is the fourth punter to win NFC Special Teams Player of the Week in consecutive team games in a single season, and the first punter to do so since Jacksonville's Bryan Barker in 1999.

Jones has had a tremendous first season in Philadelphia. His current net punting average of 41.3 yards is the highest single-season mark in Eagles history.
