There was a bye week in between, but Eagles punter Donnie Jones has won his second straight NFC special teams player of the week award.

As he did two weeks ago for his work against the Redskins, which included a 70-yard punt, Jones took home the weekly honors.

Against the Cardinals Sunday, Jones dropped seven punts inside the 20-yard line, which was a new team record. He also hit a 69-yarder, showing power along with control.

Jones has been an excellent pickup for the Eagles this year, as the 10th-year punter’s 41.3 net average is the highest for a single season in franchise history.
