Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews captured his second NFC Defensive Player of the Week honor this season and his third overall. He joins Charles Woodson (four) and Hall of Famer Reggie White (three) as the only Packers to win the honor at least three times.
Matthews had four tackles, including two for loss, a sack, two passes defensed and a 62-yard interception-return for touchdown in the Packers 45-7 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Matthews leads the NFL with 10.5 sacks and is the first player in Packers history to record at least 10 sacks in each of his first two NFL seasons. The Packers lead the NFL with 28 sacks.
