Dawkins wins NFC Defensive Player of the month

New, comments

It was a no brainer in my opinion

After leading the Eagles to a 5-0 record in the month of December, Dawkins on Thursday was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Month.

Dawkins, who was named to his sixth Pro Bowl, was the driving force behind an Eagles which yielded an average of just 17.8 points during the five-game winning streak. He recorded 48 tackles, three interceptions, one sack, two forced fumbles and six passes defensed during the month.

It was the first career Player of the Month Award for Dawkins, who recorded a career-high 93 tackles and four interceptions this season.
