Stevie Brown NFC Defensive Player of Week

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Safety Stevie Brown has been selected the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in the Giants' 29-24 victory Sunday in Dallas.

Brown is the fourth Giants player this season to receive a Player of the Week award. He is the second safety honored in three weeks, joining Antrel Rolle.

Brown intercepted two passes, recovered a fumble and tied for the team-lead with six solo tackles in Dallas, where the Giants won their fourth consecutive game to improve their midseason record to 6-2.

Brown's first interception, on Dallas' initial offensive possession, was returned 37 yards and set up a Lawrence Tynes' field goal that increased the Giants' lead to 6-0. In the fourth quarter, Brown recovered Felix Jones' fumble. The Giants' subsequent possession ended with Tynes' fifth and final field goal, which gave the Giants their final five-point lead.

Five-and-a-half minutes later, Brown intercepted Tony Romo for the second time.

Brown's two interceptions increased his season total to a team-high five. That is the NFL's second-highest total and two more than anyone else on the team. His interception total is the highest by a Giants safety since Percy Ellsworth had six in 1999. Brown has at least one interception in four of the last six games. He was the second Giant with two picks in a game this season, joining Rolle, who had two picks in San Francisco on Oct. 14.

In his first two NFL seasons - one each with Oakland and Indianapolis - Brown did not have an interception.

Brown also has two fumble recoveries for an NFL-best seven takeaways.
