Seattle Seahawks defensive end Chris Clemons has been named the NFC's Defensive Player of the Week, Clare Farnsworth of Seahawks.com reports.
Clemons had five tackles, including three quarterback sacks, and two forced fumbles in the Seahawks' 24-7 win over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. For the season, Clemons has 28 tackles and a team-high eight quarterback sacks with three forced fumbles.
This is second NFC Defensive Player of the Week award for Clemons, who took home the honor in Week 17 of the 2008 season when he played for the Philadelphia Eagles. In that game, Clemons had a pair of quarterback sacks and a forced fumble as the Eagles beat the Dallas Cowboys to earn a spot on the playoffs.
