Vikings kickoff returner Percy Harvin has been named the NFC special teams player of the week award for his game-changing performance Sunday against the Cowboys.
Harvin turned the game around at the start of the second half with a 95-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, tying the score 14-14. It was the third kick return touchdown of Harvin’s brief NFL career.
Harvin had 134 yards on three kickoff returns on Sunday.
This is Harvin’s second career player of the week award in two NFL seasons; he also won the award after returning a kickoff 101 yards for a touchdown in Week 3 last year.
