Dallas Cowboy Linebacker Sean Lee Named NFC Defensive Player of the Week
The anchor of the Dallas Cowboy defense for the past few years has obviously been linebacker Sean Lee. His play in Dallas’ 17-3 win over the Philadelphia Eagles would prove key in the victory as the team held Chip Kelly’s high powered offense in check for the majority of last Sunday’s game. Lee played so well that he was awarded the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his interception in the win and leading the team with eleven combined tackles, including one for a loss, marking the fifth straight game he’s led the team in tackles.
Monty Kiffin will need another stellar performance from Sean Lee and that defense if they want to go into Detroit this week and get a win. They are going up against arguably the best wide receiver in the game in Calvin Johnson. Kickoff for Sundays match-up is set for noon and can be seen on FOX.
