Dwayne Harris is player of the week

November, 14, 2012
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver/punt returner Dwayne Harris was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for Week 10, in which he returned a punt 78 yards for the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter of the Cowboys' victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Harris recently took over the punt-return duties from Dez Bryant, and his return for a touchdown was part of a fourth quarter in which the Cowboys became the first team since 1966 to score a punt-return touchdown, an interception-return touchdown and a fumble-recovery touchdown in the same quarter. Harris also was credited with a special-teams tackle in the game.

This is the first NFL weekly award of Harris' career and the first for a Cowboys player this season. The last Cowboys return specialist to win this award was Bryan McCann in Week 11 of 2010.
