The New York Giants, 6-2 and with a 2 1/2 game lead in the NFC East, had 2 more players earn accolades this week.
First off, S Stevie Brown has been named the NFC's Defensive Player of the Week for his dominating performance against the rival Dallas Cowboys this past Sunday. Brown is the second Giants safety in the last 3 weeks (Antrel Rolle) to have been bestowed this award. On the day, Brown had 2 interceptions, a recovered fumble and had six solo tackles. Like I have stated on this site for a few weeks, Brown has been playing like the early, pre-injury version of the player he has replaced, Kenny Phillips.
Secondly, K Lawrence Tynes has been named the NFC's Special Team Player of the Month. Tynes made 13 out of 14 field goal attempts and was 12 for 12 in extra points during the month of October, in which the team played four games. Also, Tynes had nine touchbacks in this duration as well. Along with Brown's big game on the defensive side on Sunday, Tynes booted 5 field goals. He currently stands as the NFL leader with 26 field goal attempts, 24 field goals and 94 points. Thus far, this has been the best season of his career.
With these two awards this week, it brings the Giants’ total to five on the season. The G-Men have received four Player of the Week Awards and Tynes' Player of the Month.
Congrats to these Giants players for their well-deserved recognition!
