Eagles Brandon Graham named NFC Defensive Player of the Week

Written by Tony Ghaul

Philadelphia Eagles DE Brandon Graham had a 2.5 sack performance against the Washington Commanders and former teammate Carson Wentz this past Sunday. This marks back-to-back weeks an Eagle has won the award following Darius Slay’s dominant outing against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2.

The Eagles pash rush harassed Commanders QB Carson Wentz all game. Graham led the way on defense with his 2.5 sacks. The defensive unit had a total of 9 sacks on Sunday. Graham’s biggest play of the game was a strip sack on Wentz, which set up the Eagles first touchdown.

Graham is playing at a high level through the first 3 games of season. He looks to be fully back to health, after rupturing his Achilles tendon in week 2 of last season. It’s great to see the Super Bowl hero back on the field and playing great football.
