Sean Lee is the NFC defensive player of the week

The Cowboys’ three wins over the last four weeks have featured key contributions from rookies other than Dez Bryant.  With rookie defensive back Bryan McCann winning the NFC defensive player of the week for Week 11 and the NFC special-teams player of the week for Week 12, rookie Sean Lee has been named the NFC defensive player of the week award for his performance in Week 13 against the Colts.

Lee intercepted two Peyton Manning passes, returning one for a touchdown.  The other one set up the game-winning field goal in overtime.  They were Lee’s first two career interceptions.

Lee also added nine tackles, and he broke up two passes.

  1. Ahh so a player on a 5-win team, that is already eliminated from play0ff contention is Defensive Player of the Week. Ewwww….Ahhhh!

  2. He had a decent game… nothing against the kid. But those INTs were of the ‘look what I found’ variety.

  3. Thanks for the upgrade, but the ‘boys only have 4 wins. A great player during a game is a great player, regardless of his team’s record. Two heads-up plays.

  4. I thought this was a good draft pick for the cowboys. He has potential and they needed a replacement for the washed up Brooking.

  5. Can’t really come down on Lee for the Cowboy’s record. He is a rookie and I think this is only his 2nd game. He played a great game and is deserving.

  6. I hate the Cowboys. Everything Thanksgiving for years on end, it was my cousin screaming “How bout them Cowboys” and for them to come in and beat the beloved Colts was sickening but give the kid credit, his two ints were at critical times and won the game for Dallas. He rates the award as hard as that is to say.

  7. I had this kid rated as the 2nd best ILBer in this draft.

    Right after I was still trying to cope with the fact Dez Bryant was still sitting there at #24 in the 1st round, Dallas turned around and grabbed Sean Lee in the 2nd.

    Dez Bryant and Sean Lee. Both still there.

    I couldn’t believe it.

    Everybody already knows Bryant is going to be huge. Wait until this Lee kid gets a year or two of being mentored by Brooking and Bradie James.
