LB Clay Matthews Named NFC Defensive Player of the Week

Posted Nov 10, 2010

Quarterback MICHAEL VICK of the Philadelphia Eagles, linebacker CLAY MATTHEWS of the Green Bay Packers and punter CHRIS KLUWE of the Minnesota Vikings are the NFC Offensive, Defensive and Special Teams Players of the Week for games played the ninth week of the 2010 season (November 7-8), the NFL announced today.


OFFENSE: QB MICHAEL VICK, PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

  • Vick accounted for 292 yards of offense (218 passing and 74 rushing) and two touchdowns (one passing, one rushing) in the Eagles’ 26-24 victory over Indianapolis. 
  • He threw a nine-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver DE SEAN JACKSON in the first quarter to give the Eagles an early 7-0 lead.  In the fourth quarter, he extended the lead to 26-17 when he rushed for a one-yard TD.
  • It marked the third time in his career that Vick passed for at least 200 yards and rushed for 70 yards in game. 
  • This season, Vick leads the NFL with a 105.3 passer rating and has not thrown an interception. 
  • He leads NFL QBs with 261 rushing yards and aims to join Pro Football Hall of Famer STEVE YOUNG (1992) as the only quarterbacks to post a 100.0 passer rating and rush for at least 500 yards in a single season. 
  • In his ninth season from Virginia Tech, this is Vick’s fifth career Player of the Week Award and first since Week 8, 2006 with the Atlanta Falcons.  He was also named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for September. 
  • Vick is the seventh Eagles quarterback to be honored and the second this year (KEVIN KOLB, Week 6).  

 

DEFENSE: LB CLAY MATTHEWS, GREEN BAY PACKERS

  • Matthews had four tackles, including two for a loss, a sack, two passes defensed and a 62-yard interception-return touchdown in the Packers’ 45-7 win over Dallas. 
  • He was a key contributor to a defensive unit that held the Cowboys to just 205 total yards of offense (166 passing yards, 39 rushing yards). 
  • Matthews leads the NFL with 10.5 sacks and is the first player in Packers history to recorded at least 10 sacks in each of his first two NFL seasons.  The Packers lead the NFL with 28 sacks. 
  • The touchdown marked the second of his career (42-yard FR-TD, 10/5/09 at Minnesota).
  • In his second year from Southern California, this is Matthews’ third career Player of the Week Award and second this season (Week 2).  He was also named the NFC Defensive Player of the Month for September. 
  • He joins CHARLES WOODSON (four) and Pro Football Hall of Famer REGGIE WHITE (three) as the only Packers to be named NFC Defensive Player of the Week at least three times.
  • His father, CLAY MATTHEWS, was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week twice in his career with the Cleveland Browns (Week 12, 1984 and Week 9, 1991).  They are the only father and son to win Player of the Week Awards.

 

SPECIAL TEAMS: P CHRIS KLUWE, MINNESOTA VIKINGS

  • Kluwe averaged 47.8 yards on four punts with a net average of 46.0 yards in the Vikings’ 27-24 overtime win over Arizona.  He placed all four punts inside the 20-yard line. 
  • In the first quarter, Kluwe pinned the Cardinals at the 15-yard line with a 47-yard punt and at the one-yard line with a 51-yarder.  His third punt, in the second quarter, went for 56 yards and forced Arizona to start at its own 19-yard line.  Kluwe’s fourth punt pinned the Cardinals at their own 13-yard line. 
  • This season, Kluwe leads the NFC with a 42.2-yard net average.  He is tied for third in the conference with 18 punts placed inside the 20-yard line. 
  • In his sixth season from UCLA, this is Kluwe’s first career Player of the Week Award.  In 2005, he was named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Month for September. 
  • He joins MITCH BERGER, who was honored four times in his career, as the only punters in franchise history to be named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week.
