Dwayne Harris Named NFC Special Teams Player Of The Week

Posted Sep 11, 2013


IRVING, TexasDwayne Harris was named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for the second time in his career after his performance against the Giants in the opener.
 
Most of Harris’ contributions throughout his career on special teams have come as a return man, but Harris led all players with three special teams tackles and was all over the field tracking down Giants return man Rueben Randle throughout the night.
 

Harris also served as the Cowboys’ punt returner, averaging 9.5 yards per return on two returns. He was also a vital part of helping recover a fumble on a muffed punt in the third quarter, as he dove for the ball and helped it squirt out to DeVonte Holloman.
 
Not all of Harris’ contributions came on special teams, as he also had two catches for 12 yards, but he was most noticeable on the coverage teams.
 
Harris also won the special teams honor in 2012 for his Nov. 11 performance against the Eagles. He’s the first player since Sam Hurd in 2006 to win the honor for his coverage more so than his kicking or returning.
 
Kicker Dan Bailey was the only other player to win the award for the Cowboys last year, earning it for his performance against the Browns on Nov. 18.
