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.

    For a team like the Eagles, punter is the most important position on the team

    will he be drug tested the same as Steve Weatherford for kicking two 65+ punts against Dallas two weeks ago… I bet not

    Punters don’t get much recognition, but Jones is pretty much having as good of a season as anyone ever has at that position.

    Nick Foles is leading the NFL in passer rating and LeSean McCoy leads RB in total yards. Donnie Jones has done a great job helping the defense with his punting, but he’s not playing the most important position.

    Too much trouble to watch the games?
