Eagles' D Dominates Pittsburgh

Player of the Week

Brian Dawkins

The Philly Store Player of the Week should really be the entire defense after they shut down the Pittsburgh Steelers for the whole game, giving up just two field goals. But since I can't find any graphics for the Eagles "Gang Green" defense, so I selected Dawkins as a representative for the defensive squad.

I think it's justified by the play that sealed the deal -- Dawkins literally swooping in to knock the ball out of Ben Roethlisberger's hand and recovering the fumble. The play set up a field goal to put the Birds up 15-6 late in the fourth quarter, and let everyone breath a little easier.

Got a better Player of the Week or thoughts on the game? Post it in the comments section!
