The NFL announced on Thursday Eagles linebacker Connor Barwin was named NFC Defensive Player of the Month for November. He became the first Eagle to earn a Defensive Player of the Month award since Brian Dawkins won the award in December 2009.
The Eagles defense as a whole, especially the front seven, has continued to improve this season. The 28-year-old Barwin recorded 6.5 sacks, 19 tackles, three passes defended and one forced fumble in November. He has put forth a Pro Bowl season ranking third in the NFL with 12.5 sacks to go along with 43 total tackles and two forced fumbles.
