Cowboys rookie cornerback Bryan McCann was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week today. It was only the second time that McCann had seen action in his NFL career and he was receiving extra playing time due to injuries suffered by starting corners Michael Jenkins and Terrence Newman.

McCann intercepted an Eli Manning pass that was intended for Hakeem Nicks in the endzone and then trotted 101-yards to the endzone for a Cowboys score. The interception was the longest interception return in Cowboys history and the second longest play in franchise history — a 102-yard kickoff return by Alexander Wright is the longest play.

McCann becomes the second Cowboys to win NFC Defensive Player of the Week this season. DeMarcus Ware won the award in week 3.
