The Cowboys defense has bounced back with a few big games the last two weeks, so they deserved some recognition.

Linebacker Sean Lee was named the NFC’s defensive player of the week for leading the way in a 17-3 win over the Eagles. He had a team-high 11 tackles and one of the team’s three interceptions.

The Cowboys have looked like a different group since their 51-48 loss to the Broncos, having kept the Redskins in check, and then locking down an Eagles team which had scored 30 in four of their first six.
