David Irving named NFC Defensive Player of the Week
The breakout play of Dallas Cowboys defensive end David Irving has earned him NFL honors this week.
After missing Week 5 vs. the Bengals with a concussion, Irving returned to play against the Packers and he flat out shredded The Cheese. In only 19 snaps, the second-year pass rusher was able to register three forced fumbles, four tackles, and one sack on Sunday.
Irving finally delivered the breakout game the Cowboys have been looking for since signing him from the Chiefs practice squad in 2015, and it earned him NFL honors in the process.
He's been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his lights out performance against the Packers.
All three of Irving's forced fumbles landed in the hands of the Cowboys as they went on to beat down Green Bay on their own field by a score of 30-16. Things are looking way up for Dallas if Irving can continue to play at a high level, as he'll be opposite 2015 team sack leader Demarcus Lawrence.
That's a one-two punch that could have opposing quarterbacks waking up in cold sweats.
