Eagles - Dawkins named NFC Defensive Player of the Month
It was a December for milestones for Brian Dawkins, and his efforts have been rewarded with the NFC Defensive Player of the Month award.


Dawkins closed the month by forcing two fumbles against Dallas, both of which were returned for touchdowns, the first time in NFL history that a team has scored on two 70-plus-yard return touchdowns in the same quarter. He also had nine tackles and a sack.

Earlier in the month, Dawkins had set the franchise record for games played, which now stands at 183, and was voted to his seventh Pro Bowl. He also holds a share of the franchise record with 34 interceptions.

Dawkins wil play in his franchise-record 16th postseason game on Sunday when the Eagles visit the Minnesota Vikings in an NFC wild-card game.

Chris Clemons' career day Sunday against Dallas netted him the NFC Defensive Player of the Week award. He had two sacks, forced a fumble and returned a fumble 73 yards for his first career touchdown. *
