Stevie Brown of the New York Giants has been named NFC Defensive Player of the Week for the final week of the regular season, the second time he earned that honor in 2012.

Stevie Brown concluded a breakout 2012 season by being named NFC Defensive Player of the Week for getting an interception (which he returned 48 yards) and tying chase Blackburn for the team-high with six tackles in Sunday's 42-7 rout of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Brown won the honor twice this season. He was also honored after his Week 8 performance at Dallas, where he intercepted two passes, recovered a fumble and had six solo tackles in a victory over the Cowboys.

Brown, a third-year player who spent one season with the Oakland Raiders and one with the Indianapolis Colts before coming to the Giants as a free agent in 2012, started 11 games and was second in the league with eight interceptionsHe also had 66 tackles (56 solo), 11 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.

Brown is a restricted free agent. In a league where creating turnovers has become paramount to success on defense, it's hard to imagine the Giants letting Brown get away.
