• Terrell Thomas wins NFC defensive player of week

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Oct 30, 2013
    Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas won it this week, following in the recent footsteps of his mentor Thomas Davis of the Panthers. After recording 11 tackles , a sack and a forced fumble against Philadelphia, Thomas received a game ball from coach Tom Coughlin, who handed it out with an enthusiastic "Welcome back, Terrell" in Monday's team meeting. Thomas and Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis are believed to be the only players to return to the NFL following three ACL repairs on the same knee, and the two talk frequently about their comebacks and the effort involved. His strip-sack of quarterback Matt Barkley just before halftime prevented the Eagles from scoring when the game was only 12-0 in the Giants' favor and the Eagles were going to get the ball back after halftime.
