For the second time in three weeks, a guy who suffered three torn ACLs has been named NFC defensive player of the week.

Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas won it this week, following in the recent footsteps of his mentor Thomas Davis of the Panthers.

Thomas played every snap last week, with 11 tackles and a sack/forced fumble that stole a scoring opportunity from the Eagles deep in the Giants’ territory.
