Dwayne Harris earns special teams honor
Harris' career-long 78-yard punt return gave Dallas a 24-17 lead in the fourth quarter of the Cowboys' 38-23 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. He finished with 97 punt-return yards (24.3 average) and added a special teams tackle.
The Cowboys became the first team since the 1966 San Francisco 49ers to score a touchdown via a punt return (Harris), interception return (Brandon Carr) and fumble return (Jason Hatcher) in the same quarter.
Harris is the first Cowboys return specialist to be honored since Bryan McCann in Week 11 of the 2010 season.
Tony Romo, who completed 19-of-26 passes for 209 yards and two touchdowns, was nominated for NFC offensive player of the week (won by the Saints' Jimmy Graham). Carr (47-yard INT-TD, four tackles) was nominated on defense (won by Seahawks CB Richard Sherman).
