J. Green up for GMC Defensive Player of the Week
Hey all --
Yet another Patriots' player has the chance to win a weekly award, as defensive lineman Jarvis Green is one of five nominees for the GMC Defensive player of the week.
Fans can vote at nfl.com.
Here's a bit about each of the players nominated:
* New England’s JARVIS GREEN collected five tackles (four solo), one sack and one forced fumble in the Patriots' 24 - 20 win over the Indianapolis Colts. Green's fourth-quarter sack and forced fumble led to the final Patriots' possession in which they were able to run out the clock for the win.
* New York Jets’ DAVID HARRIS made 24 tackles (20 solo) in the Jets' 23 - 20 loss to the Washington Redskins. Harris made a critical stop on Clinton Portis late in the fourth quarter that allowed the Jets to embark on their game-tying field goal drive to push the game into overtime.
* Pittsburgh’s JAMES HARRISON registered nine tackles (eight solo), 3.5 sacks, six quarterback hits, an interception, one defensed pass, two forced fumbles and one recovered fumble in the Steelers’ 38 – 7 win over the Baltimore Ravens. Harrison forced a fumble and recovered the ball on the Baltimore 20 that led to a first-quarter drive to the endzone to start Pittsburgh on their way to a 35-point first half.
* Atlanta’s LAWYER MILLOY recorded eight tackles (six solo) and one interception in the Falcons' 20 - 16 win over the San Francisco 49ers. Twice Milloy made tackles on third down that resulted in a loss of yards and prevented the 49ers from converting, forcing them to kick field goals instead of getting into the end zone. Milloy led a secondary that limited the 49ers to 251 total net yards.
* Detroit’s SHAUN ROGERS made three tackles, 2.5 sacks and one interception in the Lions' 44 - 7 win over the Denver Broncos. Rogers returned the interception 66 yards for a touchdown to put the Lions up 36 - 0 in the fourth quarter.
