The Seahawks rebounded from their first loss of the season with a win over the 49ers in Week 8 and the NFL has named one of their players as the winner of a weekly award for his effort in that victory.

Linebacker Bobby Wagner has been named the NFC defensive player of the week.

Wagner had 11 tackles, two sacks, four quarterback hits and three tackles for loss in the 37-27 victory. It’s the second time that Wagner has had multiple sacks in a game and he did it against the 49ers both times. He also had two sacks in a 25-23 win in 2017.

It’s also the second time that Wagner has been named the NFC defensive player of the week. The first time was in Week 13 of the 2018 season.

  1. Wagner reminded me how good he is when used at the line of scrimmage against the 49ers…at one point he knocked over #69 and then tackled Garoppalo….

  2. The best MLB in the NFL. This man is relentless, never stops.

    Russell Wilson is the best QB in the league, and likewise Wagner is the best MLB in the game, and has been for years. So much so, he received an MVP vote a few years back. To put that into context, that’s 1 more than Wilson has ever had.

    I really hope Hawks fans appreciate everything they have, I know I do.
